Steve Murphy Webinar
CASIOPA Chair Stephen Murphy (University of Waterloo) delivered webinar #1 on Protected Areas and Restoration Ecology Strategies.
Steve discussed how new innovations in landscape-scale and habitat scale restoration is changing the face of planning and managing ecological restoration in protected areas. The two main foci were how representativeness is beginning to shift to complementarity across the world, in an effort to be congruent with the Aichi targets. As that shift occurs, even more attention is paid to how to rewild and restore protected areas and Steve will give an overview of the tools used as well as innovations in large-scale but efficient and effective monitoring of post-restoration progress.
In addition to being Chair of CASIOPA, Steve in the Editor in Chief of the peer reviewed journal, Restoration Ecology. Steve’s done research, talks, workshops, work, and teaching on protected areas and restoration ecology for over 30 years.
