Mary Power studies river food webs, and for the last 40 years has focused on salmon-bearing food webs of the Eel River in Northern California. The South Fork Eel flows through the Angelo Coast Range Reserve, one of 40 natural reserves protected for university teaching, research, and outreach by the University of California Natural Reserve System (UCNRS). Mary will introduce the UCNRS, then describe some discoveries that working at the 8000-acre Angelo Reserve has made possible.
Dr. Power is Professor of Integrative Biology at University of California Berkeley. Since 1988, she has been faculty director of the Angelo Coast Range Reserve. With students and collaborators, she studies food webs in temperate and tropical rivers. More about Dr. Power can be learned in this interview.
