dc.contributor.author Scheffler, J. Louie
dc.description.abstract The intent of this research is to preserve and increase the resiliency of the native landscape in and around San Jose, California in regards to natural and man induced changes. Habitat near San Jose has been suffering from a loss in biodiversity since colonization by Europeans in the late 1700’s. Traditionally for urban areas, the outward rural edge contains the highest level of endemic species and biodiversity. These levels drop at a steady rate while approaching the urban center. The less diverse an ecosystem is the less productive it becomes. This is important since economic well being is intrinsically tied to the services ecosystems provide. With the onset of regional and local climate change, as well as a number of other man induced changes, the native ecosystems may be poised for a drastic reduction in biodiversity. en_US
