CCAE-CCEA

The Canadian Council on Ecological Areas (CCEA) is pleased to announce that Carmen Chelick, a MSc. Candidate at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan), is the recipient of the 2016 Stan Rowe “Home Place” Graduate Award.

Under the supervision of Dr. Jason Pither, Carmen will identify biodiversity hotspots in the Okanagan Valley, B.C. Through the mapping of functional and phylogenetic diversity, and assessment of connectivity in the region, Carmen’s research will provide a better understanding of how conservation efforts can be enhanced in this ecological important area of Canada.
