NCWRA Luncheon, Forum and Webinar - 

Guiding Stream Management using Biological Potential


Presented by:

Michael Paul,

Senior Scientist/Director, Tetra Tech, Inc., Ecological Sciences

Stream restoration requires intent — intent to restore from some current condition to some other condition. Traditional biological goals focus on minimally disturbed reference conditions, but is that appropriate for urban streams? If not, what is an appropriate biological condition target and how do we define it? And how would different goals affect decision-making?

In this talk, Michael Paul will focus on the theory and application behind the concept of biological potential, to define interim targets for the adaptive management of urban stream protection and recovery using existing biological assessment tools. He will also discuss how to integrate these concepts into improving policy.
