Traffic impacts on wildlife behavior are largely unknown, but may be the primary determinant of wildlife distribution in response to fragmentation from roads. This webinar will present findings from 3 years of research by the Road Ecology Center at the University of California, Davis on the distribution of wildlife relative to highways and their behavior in response to instantaneous traffic disturbance.
This webinar synthesizes existing research on the many household- and community-level benefits of reducing car dependence, especially when it is done through land use and transportation planning that promotes alternative travel modes.
This webinar will discuss results from research gauging the perspectives of local planners on motivations, objectives, and perceived obstacles to TOD, and planning, policy, and financial strategies that cities are pursuing to support TOD.
In this webinar, Dr. Dillon Fitch uses results from a video survey to discuss the limitations of on-road bicycling infrastructure, the range of effects person- and road-level attributes have on bicycling comfort, and to identify minimum on-road infrastructure needed to support comfortable bicycling.
