Special issue of San Francisco Estuary and Watershed Science focuses on the Central Valley Joint Venture

The latest issue of the San Francisco Estuary and Watershed Science journal is now available online.  This special issue focuses on the Central Valley Joint Venture. Despite massive losses of habitat, the Central Valley’s wetlands, riparian forests, and grassland–oak savannah woodlands still provide some of the most important bird habitat in North America. Nearly three million ducks, two million geese, […]
