Conservation Science Specialist (joined TNC 2006)
Marcos helps the Conservancy and its partners develop scientific tools and information so that our society and our natural systems can adapt to a changing environment. Current and recent projects include a multi-agency effort to develop tools and planning processes that allow for sustainable infrastructure development, and a study on the influence of forest restoration and climate variability on water yields in the Salt and Verde watersheds.
Trained as an ecosystem ecologist, Marcos has been working in conservation science for over a decade. Prior to joining the Conservancy, he worked as a project manager and conservation scientist for NatureServe. Marcos obtained his Masters degree in Ecology from Colorado State University where he did his thesis work on grassland and soil conservation in Wyoming.
