Siskiyou Superlatives: Six Studies in Biodiversity

Instructor: John Roth
Dates: Sat-Sun, September 13-14, 2014
Location: Deer Creek Center, Selma
Tuition: $100
 
Just what makes the Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion so special? There are more endemics in Hawaii, more species at their limits in the Himalayas, more species far from relatives in the Southeast, more total diversity and migrants in some tropics, and more relicts in the oceans. The sum total of these half dozen types of biodiversity, however, is as high in the Siskiyous as their separate occurrences almost anywhere else.

According to instructor John Roth, what makes this region so distinctive isnít its sheer number of life forms. Itís the range of diversities. Preserving gene patterns so well and adding new ones so fast creates a host of 1) diversities at the most varied scales 2) endemics only here 3) relics once more widespread or diverse 4) range-edge species 5) disjuncts far from relatives 6) migrants from distant continents and times

Join us as we explore six different types of Siskiyou biodiversity first in a classroom session, then out in the field looking at examples from each type.
