DescriptionBeginning in 1979, there have been a series of symposia held every 5 to 7 years addressing the state of our knowledge about science, policy and management factors affecting California's oak resource. This program represents the seventh symposium in the series. California's oak woodlands cover 10 percent of the state, and in addition, are a key ecological component of conifer forests. Oak woodlands are the most biologically diverse broad habitat in the state, making conservation of their ecosystem values an important policy and management priority. The meeting location in the San Joaquin Valley was conveniently situated for both northern and southern California oak scientists, managers, policy makers and interest groups. These proceedings have 56 papers in a broad array of subject areas, including: wildlife and oaks; oak ecosystem services; oak restoration; oak conservation, management and utilization; and the gold-spotted oak borer and sudden oak death.
