Co-Managing for Food Safety, Pest Control, and Bird Conservation Webinar With Dr. Daniel Karp

by Jacob Guth |

CCOF Co-Management Series: Food Safety and Organic

For organic operations, balancing food safety considerations with the organic requirement to maintain or improve natural resources (water, woodlands, wetlands, and wildlife) can be challenging. CCOF encourages a world where organic is the norm; however, organic farming practices and rigorous food safety requirements can potentially conflict.

In an upcoming talk, Dr. Daniel Karp will discuss strategies for conserving biological diversity within California agricultural systems. Birds play multiple roles on California farms, not only consuming crops and potentially spreading foodborne diseases, but also consuming crop pests. Daniel will outline his lab’s work striving to find ways to manage California birds and take advantage of the benefits they can provide farmers, while minimizing harm to food production.

More about the presenter: Dr. Daniel Karp is an associate professor in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at the University of California, Davis. Daniel’s interests center on developing methods for harmonizing food production with the conservation of ecosystem services and biodiversity. He completed his Ph.D. in 2013 and B.S. in 2009 at Stanford University. After his Ph.D., Daniel worked as a NatureNet Science Fellow at the Nature Conservancy and UC Berkely. He was then awarded a Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship to conduct research at the University of British Columbia.
