Science symposium: Thresholds and Ecosystem Restoration

November 19, UC Davis

How can scientific understanding of ecosystem multiple states more effectively inform restoration and management, and vice versa? Addressing these questions requires scientists to understand challenges that confront managers in making decision about ecosystem restoration, as well as managers to understand the methods available to diagnose ecosystem changes and associated uncertainties.

To achieve this exchange, this one-day symposium will bring together scientists and managers considering multiple stable states in a wide variety of ecosystems. The central goals of the symposium are to (1) inform scientists about decision-making process and real-world challenges in ecosystem management and restoration, (2) inform managers of the latest decision support tools emerging from science on ecosystem multiple stable states, and (3) promote dialogue and potential collaboration among scientists and managers working on the delta-estuary-marine ecosystem continuum.
