Speaker: Tom Smith, Center for Tropical Research, Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, UCLA

Tom Smith and Ryan Harrigan will highlight their research to transfer to California a previously developed prioritization framework that combines intraspecific genetic and morphological variation with traditionally used indices of biodiversity. They will overview its utility for conservation prioritization. This CA LCC funded project integrate existing data on intraspecifc variation of multiple species in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area with climate data and space-borne measurements of the environment to identify areas with high intraspecific variation.
