Perennial pepperweed invasion on a restored seasonal floodplain

The science of restoration ecology emphasizes the importance of managing, and often manipulating, both physical and biotic factors to facilitate ecosystem recovery. Among many other factors, our investigation of successful riparian floodplain restoration has focused on the positive impact of...

Habitat Restoration Monitoring & Assessment: A Personal Geodatabase Design

Conservation organizations are increasingly looking to assess the effectiveness of their habitat restoration activities. Such analyses require an accessible record of land use and restoration activities over time. To address these needs in a complex, multi-institutional land conservation and...

Perennial Pepperweed Infestation on the Cosumnes River Experimental Floodplain A Report to the California Bay-Delta Authority

Riparian floodplains present a unique challenge for restoration management, in that these are, by definition, dynamic, constantly changing ecosystems. As restoration projects are initiated and progress through time, both native and invasive species can become established. During the initial...

Patterns of regional and local riparian plant diversity in the California Sacramento - San Joaquin Valley

The widespread degradation of riparian ecosystems requires that we more fully understand patterns of plant diversity at multiple scales to inform restoration and conservation efforts locally and regionally. We analyzed the distribution of riparian plant diversity in California's Sacramento - San...

Geodatabase application for invasive plant tracking and coordinated habitat restoration

Non-native invasive plants, such as Lepidium latifolium and Arundo donax, threaten
the ecological integrity of riparian habitat throughout California. Numerous projects
across the state are underway to eradicate select weeds, yet there is little or no
monitoring of parameters that...
