Speaker Series: An FQA for Maricopa County

Sustain & Restore

Event Description

Join us, Maricopa County Parks and Recreation and the Desert Botanical Garden, who teamed up with Gerald Wilhelm and Linda Masters, to bring and develop an amazing program and tool, the Floristic Quality Assessment (FQA) for the county.

What is an FQA you ask? It is a value-driven tool used to assess an area’s ecological integrity based on its plant species composition. FQAs were originally developed to assess the likelihood that impacts to an area would be irreversible or irretrievable, but they are also used to make standard comparisons among various open land areas, to set conservation priorities, and to monitor site management or restoration efforts.

Join our team as we discuss the development process of the Maricopa County FQA database, learn about this amazing tool and how it can be used.
