Unravelling the Mystery of Sycamores
Join us on November 9th, 2021 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm on zoom.
The historical extent of sycamore alluvial woodland has been reduced significantly as a result of land use change and alteration of streamflow and sediment regimes. As part of the EPA-funded “Preparing for the Storm” project, the San Francisco Estuary Institute, Zone 7 Water Agency, and HT Harvey are collaborating to expand a regional dataset to better understand how sycamore distribution, health and regeneration patterns relate to geomorphic and hydrologic processes. Field-based sycamore surveys at sites along Arroyo Mocho and Arroyo Valle in Livermore Valley were conducted and analyzed with geospatial and hydrologic information. This work, as well as insights from other sycamore research such as genetic studies, is being used to develop regional suitability analyses to advance process-based restoration and provide planting guidance.
