  • Enhancing the Resilience of Edaphic Endemic Plants through Refined Vegetation and Soils Characterizations
    Southern California NCCPs support edaphic endemic plants that face low genetic diversity due to reduced population sizes, geographic isolation, and loss of pollinators.  To enhance the resilience of these species across their ranges, we must manage threats to increase population sizes, identify potentially suitable habitat to connect existing populations, find ...
  • Water Planning Information Exchange: A web-based application to exchange water resource information for the state of California
    The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) is developing the Water Plan Information Exchange (Water PIE) to promote integrated regional water management through data sharing. CBI is conducting a pilot project to create a web portal, powered by Data Basin, in order to test key requirements for Water PIE. The ...
  • Brachypodium Phase II Project
    The Brachypodium Phase II project continues treatment of the invasive grass, Brachypodium distachyon, in two locations in San Diego County where it threatens the persistence of covered species and sensitive habitats and increases wildfire risk to these resources. Objectives are to refine Brachypodium Best Management Practices (BMPs) for application at ...
  • Seedlot Selection Tool
    Climate change threatens forest health and the delivery of ecosystem services.  Key threats resulting from changes in precipitation and increases in temperature include wildfires, drought, insects, disease, and invasive species.  There is an urgent need to adopt new climate-smart approaches to forest management, but progress has been slow ...
  • California Statewide Energy Planning
    CBI is providing science and technical support to assist the California Energy Commission (CEC) in planning the state’s future energy needs, which includes achieving aggressive renewable energy goals with minimal damage to natural systems. Building off of previous work completed for the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP), CBI is ...
