Cities are dynamic ecosystems where social and ecological factors interact to influence the amount and distribution of urban biodiversity. This January, Pedro Garcia will present insights from his analysis of data from the Fresno Bird Count (a citizen science project) to help understand what shapes bird species diversity at residential and city-wide scales in the Fresno-Clovis Metro Area.
Join us for an evening of conversation about how the study of social-ecological interactions helps us understand and manage urban ecosystems better, especially in times of stress like the drought now affecting California.
