From the back cover

 "In the summer of 2005, the executive director of the Butte Environmental Council, Barbara Vlamis, assembled a vernal pool lands committee to address preservation of vernal pool landscapes in Northern California. This committee convened a two-day conference in March 2006 on the biology, conservation and management of vernal pool landscapes."

"The conference was initiated in the "Big Room" of Sierra Nevada Brewery, with invited talks by researchers, land managers, government personnel, and others involved with vernal pool landscape preservation. This book contains articles developed and expanded from the talks presented that day."
