Held in Conjunction with
California Rangeland Conservation Coalition Summit
January 20, 2012 | UC Davis Freeborn Hall

The Rangeland Science Symposium provided a forum for California’s rangeland and ranching communities to learn about and discuss the most recent research about contemporary rangeland issues. Emphasis was placed on:

  1. Translating new research findings for immediate use in management and policy
  2. Identifying critical information needs to guide new research and outreach
  3. Stimulating new collaborations between managers, scientists, and other stakeholders

This inaugural symposium focused on managing rangelands for multiple ecosystem services, such as clean water, habitat, diversity, resistance to weed invasion, carbon sequestration and nutrient retention, and livestock production. The symposium will address the opportunities, challenges, and trade-offs of simultaneously managing for multiple ecosystem services.
