METRANS Fall 2019 Speaker Series

Transportation systems cause negative changes in adjacent and distant ecosystems’ characteristics and processes. These changes are usually not mitigated during construction, maintenance and "re-construction" of facilities. Impacts to endangered ecosystems and species are usually more noticeable and likely to trigger more effective mitigation. Dr. Shilling will discuss ways to identify these impacts and possible mitigation strategies

Fraser Shilling, Ph.D. is Director of the Road Ecology at UC Davis and faculty in the graduate groups of Ecology and Transportation Technology & Policy. He is especially interested in pressing conservation and social problems that seem intractable.

RSVP required. Lunch will be served.
