Understanding Dynamic Floodplains in Socioecological Systems: Insights from Portfolio Theory

Wed, Feb 19, 12:00 pm
1-131 Wilson Hall
Speaker Name: 
Dr. William Kleindl
Montana State University
Land Resources & Environmental Sciences

Dr. William Kleindl is an aquatic ecologist in the Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences at MSU, with a B.A. in Botany (University of Wisconsin, 1987), an M.S. in Urban Stream Ecology (University of Washington, 1995), and a Ph.D. in Systems Ecology (The University of Montana, December 2014). He has more than 30 years of academic and consulting experience within public and private sectors in the science, policy, and management of aquatic environments, including extensive experience in the assessment, restoration, and management of degraded wetlands and rivers across multiple spatial and temporal scales. His current research focuses on the shifting mosaic of riparian systems that are driven by fluvial and fire disturbances within anthropogenic landscape patches shaped by silviculture, agriculture, development, and preservation management decisions. In his seminar he will discuss whether the portfolio effect is an efficient resource management tool in socioecological systems.
