SEAFWA 2015 has ended
Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 SEAFWA Annual Meeting.

The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 2), track (i.e. Wildlife Technical Sessions), or session (i.e. Wildlife Session #1). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Changing Landscapes by Coalition), key term (i.e. striped bass), or presenter last name (i.e. Weaver). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer.

Amie Treuer-Kuehn, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), MoRap and other partners recently completed a seven year project to map the current status of Texas' vegetation communities, the "Ecological Mapping Systems of Texas" (EMS-TX). This effort resulted in one of the largest statewide vegetation and abiotic datasets in the US. Strategically applying these data at a landscape level has been identified as a need by government agencies, NGOs and others providing conservation planning on a state or regional scale. Filling this need, TPWD is mapping "Texas Ecological Indices" (TEI), to identify areas where limited resources would make the biggest impact towards restoration or recovery and provide a tool to avoid ecologically diverse or sensitive areas. Ecologically significant areas are identified based on scientific knowledge, species data, and the EMS-TX. TEI provides decision support for public or private landscapes and streamlines big data to support landscape level planning incorporating the most current data.
