Abstract
My research interests are diverse, encompassing open space conservation and management for wildlife; mitigation and habitat restoration as they relate to ameliorating biodiversity loss, particularly in coastal sage scrub and wetlands (ecological restoration); rare, threatened and endangered species, particularly in wetland habitats; invasive species; and environmental ethics. Current projects include a large wetland restoration in the UC Natural Reserve System’s San Joaquin Freshwater Marsh Reserve. This restoration will remove 4,100 lineal feet of roads within the wetland, creating nearly five acres of new habitat, will re-establish an aquatic, tidally influenced link between the Marsh and San Diego Creek, and will retrofit Marsh water flow infrastructure. Over a dozen acres of coastal sage scrub and 50 acres of freshwater marsh habitat have been created at UCI, and I monitor UCI’s wetland mitigation projects. Students are central to my research and help design, implement, and monitor restorations, and they share authorship in publications. Over two dozen of my Independent Research (199) undergraduate students have presented papers or posters at national symposia, and I have coauthored twelve papers with undergraduate or graduate students. My most recent book, Rio de Dios (2008), is about the Los Angeles River, and presents its history and the planned restoration of various segments. As a member of the Coastal Greenbelt Authority, being UCI’s representative to the Nature Reserve of Orange County (NROC), Chair of UCI’s Open Space Committee, and because of my affiliation with the UC Natural Reserve System, I am able to help students become involved with local research, monitoring, and surveys conducted by the USGS Biological Survey and other agencies, NROC, university research projects, various consulting groups, and others. These studies include a broad range of topics, such as invasive plant (globe artichokes, for example) and animal control, avian and wildlife monitoring in the San Joaquin Marsh Reserve, coastal cactus wren and California gnatcatcher surveys in the UCI Ecological Preserve and other Orange County sites, Pacific Pond Turtle censuses and research, bobcat population and movement monitoring, clapper rail monitoring, local restoration efforts at Crystal Cove State Park, Newport Back Bay, as well as UCI, and similar studies. I am a faculty advisor for the Orange County Chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology, and help them with their restoration efforts and other projects. As Director of the UCI Arboretum and Herbarium, I am able to provide students with common garden and saran house research space, and can help them work with graduate student and faculty researchers at the Arboretum. I am a member of UCI's Sustainability Committee and assist students in accessing UCI’s sustainability programs, campus-wide efforts in this area, and related research on campus.
