Managed Relocation Under A Changing Climate Symposium
The symposium, convened by the UC Davis Coastal and Marine Sciences Institute’s and the Delta Science Program, seeks to explore a highly debated management approach for promoting species' responses to climate change in managed relocation: translocating individuals to a climate anticipated to be more suitable under future conditions than their current location. This day long symposium will bring together scientists and managers considering managed relocation in a variety of systems.
The central goals of the symposium are to (1) inform scientists on the decision-making process for translocations, (2) inform managers on the latest decision-support tools and related information emerging from science, and (3) promote an exchange of information among marine, freshwater, and terrestrial scientists and managers on decision-making approaches and recent scientific advancements.
Attendance is free. Registration is required to attend any portion of the symposium.
Please note that registration is capped at 200 attendees for this symposium due to seating capacity.
Video recording of this symposium will be available on the CMSI website within one week after the symposium.
*PLEASE NOTE: We are again offering a prepaid catered lunch to all registrants. The registration system is automatically set-up to receive a payment of $12.00 by credit card from you for the cost of the lunch.
