SESYNC Seminar: Synthesis of Anthropogenic Threat & Demographic Data to Predict Extinction Risk

When: Tuesday, March 05, 2013 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Where: SESYNC, 1 Park Place, Suite 300, Annapolis, MD
Event Type(s): Seminar

Presenter: Dr. Judy Che-Castaldo, Postdoctoral Fellow, SESYNC. The U.S. Endangered Species Act requires not only protection of all listed threatened and endangered species, but also recovery of species so that they are no longer at risk of extinction. Determining when species are recovered has proven to be difficult, in part because we do not know how to systematically measure the effects of the various factors that contribute to extinction risk. Dr. Che-Castaldo's research seeks to measure the relationships between extinction risk and factors, such as species life history traits and human activities, to help improve recovery planning.
