Solutions for some of the most pressing conservation issues facing North America will be sought during an upcoming forum on campus.
The 10th biennial Conference for Research on the Colorado Plateau, “The Collaborative Conservation in Rapidly Changing Landscapes,” is Oct. 5-8 for managers, scientists, Society for Conservation Biology chapter members and anyone interested in the future of the environment.
More than 40 NAU researchers will present their conservation research findings during the conference, which is a collaboration of the U.S. Geology Survey and the Society for Conservation Biology, North America section.
NAU topics range from the management of Mexican gray wolves, monitoring meadows, forest health preservation, restoring Ponderosa pine ecosystems to conserving rare plants and how climate change can impact harvesting practices.
The conference also includes presentations by policy makers, breakout sessions and workshops.
