Identifying and Resolving Critical Collisions between Transportation and Ecosystems

Wed, October 30, 2019
12:00 PM  PST


Fraser Shilling: Co-Director, UC Davis Road Ecology Center

About this Event

Transportation systems cause negative changes in adjacent and distant ecosystems' characteristics and processes. These changes are usually not mitigated during construction, maintenance and "re-construction" of facilities. Impacts to endangered ecosystems and species are usually more noticeable and likely to trigger more effective mitigation. Dr. Shilling will discuss ways to identify these impacts and possible mitigation strategies.

Fraser Shilling, Ph.D. is Director of the Road Ecology at UC Davis and faculty in the graduate groups of Ecology and Transportation Technology & Policy. He is especially interested in pressing conservation and social problems that seem intractable.

Automated Analysis of Wildlife-Vehicle Conflict Hotspots Using Carcass and Collision Data

Wed, February 13, 2019

Special Guest Respondents

About this Event

Wildlife-vehicle conflict (WVC) refers to any interaction between wildlife and vehicles/traffic that can have negative impacts for drivers and/or wildlife. This includes animals fleeing from traffic noise/light, to drivers swerving around animals on the road surface, to vehicle collisions with animals. When drivers swerve because of animals on the road and crash, or when vehicles collide with larger animals, this can result in damage to the vehicle, and injury and sometimes death for drivers and passengers. Although there are always some aspects of WVC that are difficult to predict (e.g., when an animal might decide to cross a road), there is also some predictability to WVC that can be highlighted by studying past WVC events. Most states and countries use past WVC occurrences as a source of information for planning mitigation to improve driver safety and to protect animals.
