Institution: University of Massachusetts

Description of Expertise:

My research centers on understanding and forecasting invasive terrestrial plant distributions and abundances. I work at local, landscape, and continental scales to identify patterns and mechanisms of invasions in the face of climate and land use change.

Name: Amatangelo, Kathryn (Researcher)

Institution: The College at Brockport, SUNY

Description of Expertise:

My research focuses on the impacts of exotic and native invasive species on plant communities and ecosystems in wetlands and forests. I combine tool and methods from physiological, community, ecosystem, and paleoecology to link changes at the community scale to ecosystem impacts. I am also interested in the mechanisms behind invasion, particulary the contribution of phenotypic plasticity and unique physiological traits to invasive species success.

Name: Aronson, Myla (Researcher)

Institution: Rutgers University

Description of Expertise:

My research and applied work focuses on the conservation, restoration, and maintenance of biodiversity in human dominated landscapes. I am specifically interested in invasive species impacts and management and the ecological function of restored communities as well as understanding which species are best adapted to urban conditions.

Name: Ashpole, Sara (Researcher)

Institution: St. Lawrence University

Description of Expertise:

Since 1999, Sara’s research has been collaborative with NGO, government, First Nation peoples, and private landowners examining cumulative impacts to amphibian, reptile, and turtle populations in the Great Lakes and the South Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. Projects include long term amphibian population monitoring, wetland restoration and rehabilitation, road ecology, alien vertebrate species mitigation, agricultural eco-toxicology, landowner stewardship, community outreach and education.

Name: Balyszak, James (Manager)

Institution: Hydrilla Task Force of the Cayuga Lake Watershed

Description of invasive species management work:

I serve as the Program Manager for the Hydrilla Task Force of the Cayuga Lake Watershed (HTF). My work focuses on the development and implementation of comprehensive management strategies for the control and eradication of the invasive hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillata) plant. Management activities focus on hydrilla infestations discovered in the Cayuga Lake Watershed (Ithaca, NY) since 2011. Through extensive collaboration between local/regional/statewide stakeholders, the HTF oversees all aspects of the Cayuga Lake Watershed Hydrilla Project. Project components consist of: In-field management, intensive plant community/hydrilla monitoring and sampling, and community education and outreach. Through these Project components, the HTF aims to eradicate hydrilla infestations within the Cayuga Lake Watershed AND to prevent further spread of hydrilla in New York State.
