BAY DELTA SCIENCE CONFERENCE: Working With Nature Across the Land Use Spectrum: A Holistic Approach to Ecological Resilience

Many approaches to ecological restoration and enhancement of ecosystem services focus on particular parts of the landscape, such as open spaces high in watersheds, urban areas, agricultural areas, waterways, or shorelines. This approach to dividing up large physical and ecological systems might be easier to manage, but may fail to maximize benefits across the full system. At the 2018 Bay […]

BROWN BAG SEMINAR: California floodplains and the fish that use them

How restoring functional flows to floodplains could help restore native fish Two centuries ago, the floor of the Central Valley was largely a marshy wetland.  In the springtime, the snowpack would melt, swelling the rivers beyond their banks and casting the young fish out onto the floodplains.  There they would stay for months, fattening up on the abundant zooplankton and […]

BROWN BAG SEMINAR: Developing Tiered Environmental Flow Criteria Using a Functional Flows Approach for California Streams

Establishing environmental flow targets to protect aquatic communities is a priority for numerous programs in California including in the Delta. In this first of three brown bag seminars focusing on flow targets and ecology, Dr. Yarnell discusses her recent work using a functional-flows approach to develop statewide environmental flow recommendations. The approach allows for the rapid development of flow regimes […]
