Professor Torgersen Helps Organize Riverscape Workshop in France

From June 22 to 24, USGS Landscape Ecologist and SEFS Affiliate Professor Christian Torgersen co-organized a workshop in Antony, France, “Putting the Riverscape Perspective into Practice: State of the Science and Future Directions in Freshwater Management.”

Sponsored and hosted by Irstea, the French National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture, the workshop focused on evaluating applications of the riverscape approach to address challenges for watershed and fisheries managers. The riverscape approach uses theories from landscape ecology and applies them to river ecosystems, and the workshop brought together scientists from Canada, France, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States.
