Human Impacts

Samuel Sweet

Distributional ecology and systematics of western North American and Australian amphibians and reptiles; ecology and systematics of monitor lizards; mechanics of intergrade zones and of speciational processes; crypsis; functional and evolutionary morphology; ethnozoology; conservation biology.

Erica Fleishman

Erica Fleishman (B.S., M.S. Stanford University, Ph.D. University of Nevada, Reno) is a researcher at the John Muir Institute of the Environment, University of California, Davis. She focuses on application of conservation science to management of public and private lands in the western United States with work such as explaining and projecting the responses of animals to changes in land cover, land use, and climate.

Lee Hannah

Lee Hannah is Senior Fellow in Climate Change Biology at Conservation International’s (CI) Center for Applied Biodiversity Science. Tracking with his interest in the role of climate change in conservation planning and methods of corridor design, he heads CI’s efforts to develop conservation responses to climate change.

Hunter Lenihan

Hunter Lenihan’s primary research interests lie in the fields of applied population and community ecology, especially in connection with fisheries management and restoration. He has collaborated with California fishing communities to design research projects intended to advance habitat-based fisheries management. He is also exploring ecological and oceanographic processes that regulate coral populations, particularly at a long-term project on the island of Moorea, in French Polynesia, with the goal of developing new techniques for coral reef restoration.

Christopher Costello

I am a professor of Environmental and Resource Economics at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, UC Santa Barbara. My research concerns natural resource management and property rights under uncertainty, with a particular emphasis on information, its value, and its effect on management decisions.

Leila M. V. Carvalho

Dr. Carvalho is a Professor in the Department of Geography and Researcher at the Earth Research Institute, UCSB. She has a B.S., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Meteorology from the University of São Paulo, Brazil. Her research interests are in regional and large-scale climate variability and modeling, global climate change and scaling processes in geophysics. These topics include (but are not limited to) climate variation and change in monsoon regions, tropical-extratropical interactions, extreme precipitation and temperature, and regional modeling.
