Session: T1 & T2 -- Restoring the Bay and Delta
Session title: "Bay Delta Program: The Most Comprehensive Ecosystem"
Summary: The California-Federal Bay-Delta Program is a 5-year-old cooperative effort by state and federal agencies to develop a long-term, comprehensive plan that will restore ecological health and improve water management for the San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento-San Joaquin river delta. Technical Session One will be devoted to political issues related to the program. It will include Tom Graff of the Environmental Defense Fund discussing the trade offs that must be made between water users and the environmental communities to restore ecological balance to the Bay and Delta. Brenda Jahns Southwick of the California Farm Bureau Federation will discuss concerns that the program provide some regulatory relief to farmers, assure a reliable water supply and protect the economic viability of California agriculture. During Session Two, speakers will address scientific and technical issues related to restoring, monitoring and managing the Bay-Delta ecosystem.

Session: T11 -- Eradicating Invading Species
Paper: "Eradication Criteria: Insights from Medfly Programs in California"
Summary: Jim Carey, a UC Davis insect demographer and Mediterranean fruit fly expert, will discuss the differences between eradicating and controlling invading exotic pests. The economic advantage of eradication over control is the essential difference between the two approaches, says Carey. Using California's medfly eradication program as an example, Carey will outline six preconditions for launching an eradication campaign and will talk about the related biological and political problems.

Session: T15 -- Environmental Costs of Highways
