Talk on Streamside Zones
The MidCoast Watersheds Council hosts a presentation on “Streamside Zones with Benefits: Biodiversity, Carbon, and Beyond” at its meeting on May 5, 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to all.
The speaker is Dr. Kristen Dybala, Principal Ecologist at Point Blue Conservation Science, where she leads research to inform conservation strategies with multiple benefits for people, wildlife, and ecosystems. She is currently developing a field protocol for quantifying the multiple benefits of riparian (streamside) restoration projects and a framework for projecting the multiple co-benefits and trade-offs of land management decisions. Originally from Houston, Texas, she earned her Ph.D. in Ecology at the University of California--Davis. Her research has focused on riparian and wetland ecosystems in California's Central Valley, examining bird population and community responses to habitat restoration, climate-change impacts, and trade-offs with carbon sequestration.
