University of California Summer Symposia in Conservation Biology

The target audience is UC graduate students and UC Cooperative Extension personnel interested in conservation biology, allowing them opportunities to interact with faculty and conservation professionals and to discuss the challenges of managing for conservation objectives. There have been three Symposia, all held at the UC White Mountain Research Station (WRMS) Crooked Creek facilities. All were organized in conjunction with WRMS funded by a grant from the UC Office of the President. The third Symposium was held August 12–17, 2001. The theme was “Conserving biodiversity in temperate and tropical regions: Challenges and approaches”. The second Symposium was held August 13–18, 2000. The theme was “The underpinnings of conservation biology: Soil, science, and politics”. The first Symposium was held August 1–6, 1999. The theme was: “Challenges in conservation science”. Immediately following the 1999 Symposium, a two-day workshop (Ecological restoration in montane, riparian, and upland habitats in the Owens Valley) was offered.
