"A gene drive construct that could spread to all components of the population may mean that eradication of sea lamprey from the Great Lakes is no longer an impossible dream."

Dr. Annise Dobson's invasion research is motivated by forest conservation for all, particularly in urban and managed forests.
This 5-year study offers considerations for monitoring the indirect effects of invasive plant treatments, such as non-target impacts, biodiversity benefits, and secondary invasion.
Dr. Mark Renz works to improve weed management to maximize benefits to the farmer and land manager while minimizing impacts to the environment.
Shaw et al. test five common message emphasis frames, offering insights into how they can influence engagement and behavior.
In this researcher spotlight, NYISRI interviews Dr. Jessica Rogers, who works with her student researchers to document and control purple loosestrife in Northern New York.
An international team of 19 researchers identify and summarize four critical priority areas to better advance invasion science in an era of rapid global change.
"I study both lakes and terrestrial islands, which are ecological kissing cousins because their relative isolation creates a sensitivity to non-native species introductions," says Dr. Meghan Brown, an academic scientist at Hobart & William Smith Colleges.
This paper summarizes current research and knowledge about one of the top invasive species in Europe to help inform management of other invasive species that cover broad ranges and span diverse habitat types.
"Being able to predict which non-native species are likely to become invasive is kind of a holy grail of invasion biology that we hope to help reach," says Dr. Bianca Lopez, who studies the combined effects of invasive species and environmental change.
