Archive: Reconciling California’s Delta: Water for Fish and People

This event has passed and is archived.

Peter Moyle

The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is the heart of California’s water delivery system, connecting the precipitation-rich regions of the north with the dry farmlands and demanding urban areas of the south and coast. Scarce water resources create conflicts between people and fishes, and as human demand for water grows, less water is available for the environment. In his lecture Peter Moyle will explore this conflict, using the concept of reconciliation ecology as the basis for resolving it. Moyle is distinguished professor emeritus in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology and associate director of the Center for Watershed Sciences at the University of California, Davis.
