Barkalow Lecture 2018: Dr. Seth Riley
- This event has passed.
The College of Natural Resources invites you to join us at the 2018 Frederick and Joan Barkalow Distinguished Conservationist Lecture, where we are pleased to welcome Dr. Seth Riley, National Parks Service and UCLA Adjunct Faculty. Since 2000, Seth has been a Wildlife Ecologist with the National Park Service at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in southern California.
Dr. Riley’s research focuses on the ecology and conservation of wildlife in fragmented urban landscapes. Specifically, this includes the behavior and ecology of wide-ranging mammalian carnivores such as mountain lions and bobcats, the effects of fragmentation and roads on the population genetic structure of wildlife (including carnivores, reptiles, and birds), and the effects of urbanization on the diversity and abundance of reptile and amphibian communities. Dr. Riley is also interested in conservation and management of wildlife in National Parks, and in the effective long-term monitoring of National Park resources.
