On Campus This Week: Dr. Paul Beier, Northern Arizona University

As part of our weekly colloquium series, Dr. Paul Beier from the School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University, will give a presentation on “Cougars, Connectivity, and Missing Linkages: two decades of expanding vision and partnerships.”

During a study of cougars in rapidly urbanizing Southern California (1988-1992), he documented that dispersing cubs could find and use narrow corridors through urban areas, and he developed a population model that illustrated the importance of connectivity. Dr. Beier spent the next decade learning how to effectively translate this science into conservation action.

In collaboration with a number of agencies, GIS is being used to help acquire land easements, change zoning, restore habitat, and mitigate transportation projects. “This collaborative, science-based approach provides a template for creating a green infrastructure in even the most human-dominated landscapes,” states Dr. Beier.

The University of Redlands/ESRI Colloquium is a weekly lecture series for University of Redlands GIS graduate students and ESRI employees.
