Museum Lecture on Endangered Species
John R. Rotenberry from the Center of Conservation Biology at UC Riverside will discuss “Beyond the Endangered Species Act” at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands on Wednesday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. This guest lecture is open to the public at no charge.
The University of California at Riverside’s Center for Conservation Biology has been undertaking multi-species habitat conservation planning in Riverside County. Dr. Rotenberry will explain this innovative approach to land-use planning.
Rotenberry is a professor of biology at UCR and is campus director of the UCR Natural Reserve System and associate director of the Center for Conservation Biology. He has worked on the ecology and population biology of birds in arid shrub-lands and grasslands for over 30 years, with particular emphasis on habitat and diet selection, reproductive biology, and community ecology. His research has recently expanded to encompass the conservation biology of vertebrates, especially from a landscape ecological perspective. He received his B.A. from the University of Texas, Austin, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Oregon State University. He is a fellow of the American Ornithologists’ Union and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and is president-elect of the Cooper Ornithological Society.
