Becca - Southern California Academy of Sciences Conference April 2008

Becca is working on her Masters in Biology at CSUF. This is her “Poster” that she presented at the Southern California Academy of Sciences Conferences in April, 2008.
She was presenting the results of her research that she began in 2006 that examined the effects of disturbance of biological soil crusts on the emergence of exotic plants in California sage scrub. Her results will assist land managers’ efforts to control exotic invasions in this threatened habitat by including biological soil crusts as a ecological structure that inhibits exotic invasions and a component of overall ecosystem health. Biological invasions are the second greatest threat to biodiversity loss after habitat destruction.
Good Luck Sweetie!
