Come help us find representatives of as many different phyla (major life forms) at Mori Point. The focus is on how many different major life forms we can find–things with backbones, flowering plants, red algae, echinoderms (sea stars, urchins) etc. Think of it as trying to find as many different major branches on the tree of life, rather than counting the leaves (species). Depending on participants interest we may also look at shrub and tree diversity. No prior knowledge necessary, but something new and interesting for everyone from the casual nature lover, to the knowledgable botanist or birder. This walk is led by Dr. Carlos Davidson.
Carlos Davidson is an ecologist and professor of Environmental Studies at San Francisco State University. His research is on the causes of amphibian population declines. Davidson earned his Ph.D in ecology at the University of California, Davis. He lives in Pacifica and walks Mori Point regularly.
