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

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

   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.

    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,

    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.
