Living on the Edge: Santa Barbara's Complex Wildland-Urban Interface

What do we know about the ecological implications of living so close to nature? Invasive species, wildfires, and habitat loss are just some of the issues that make Santa Barbara an ideal laboratory for learning how to coexist with natural hazards under a changing climate.  Max Moritz is specialist in the UC Berkeley Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, whose expertise is in fire ecology and management.
