    Wired Roots:  Applications of Wireless Sensor Networks for Habitat
    Monitoring in the Wilds of Mt. Hamilton 

  PRESENTED BY:
    Michael Hamilton,
    Dir. of U.C. Berkeley's Blue Oak Ranch Reserve

  TOPIC SUMMARY:
    Dr. Hamilton will discuss a brief history of the Blue Oak Ranch
    Reserve, a 5,000 acre ecological reserve perched upon Mt Hamilton
    below the Lick Observatory -- and how technologies such as Ubuntu
    Linux, wireless networks, sensors, and imagers will transform our
    understanding of ecological processes and interactions of species
    and the environment.  He will conclude with a brief discussion of
    the San Jose Climate Clock project. 

  ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
     Michael Hamilton is an ecologist, conservation biologist, and the
     reserve director of the Blue Oak Ranch Reserve, a unit of the UC
     Natural Reserve System, located near Mount Hamilton in the Diablo
     Range, due east of San Jose, California. He received his Ph.D. from
     Cornell University in 1983, and holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in
     biology and ecology from California State Polytechnic University,
     Pomona.

     Michael is one of several founders, a past board member, and
     currently serves as scientific advisor for the Society for
     Conservation GIS, an organization with 3000 members worldwide that
     trains and supports academic and NGO professionals involved in
     nature protection and conservation biology using remote sensing and
     Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies. His professional
     activities have taken him throughout the United States and Mexico,
     and to many continents and countries including Europe, Africa,
     Australia, South America, and French Polynesia.
