Name: Spichiger, Sven-Erik (Researcher)

Institution: Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture

Description of Expertise:

My research centers around the protection of plant industries from insect pests. We often collaborate with members of the research community to help develop new monitoring or control strategies for pests that impact plant industried in Pennsylvania. In addition we are tasked with the development and implementation of responses to newly introduced pests. My team is strong in surviellance and insect identification, and we can be a good source for specimen material, and have a strong insect reference collection which focuses on plant pests.

Name: Stalter, Richard (Researcher)

Institution: St. John’s University

Description of Expertise:

My research centers around biodiversity of coastal barrier islands and wetlands. I am interested in documenting the vascular flora of the aforementieioned sites especially sites in state and national parks as these sites are preserved providing documentation of the flora for comparative research in the future.

Name: Starkey, Drew (Manager)

Institution: Wayne County Soil & Water Conservation District

Description of invasive species management work:

I help coordinate hand pull & public education events related to water chestnut control. The District has a fleet of canoes and kayaks that can serve up to 12 individuals in conjunction with 3 large weed harvester boats. The majority of our work is conducted along the bays and tributaries leading into Lake Ontario. These include, Maxwell Bay, Sodus Bay, East Bay, Port Bay, as well as Red Creek (Wolcott, NY). Much of our work has been in partnership with FLPRISM/FLI out of Hobart & William Smith College as well as DEC Region 8 in the Lake Shore Marshes WMA.

Name: Titus, John (Researcher)

Institution: SUNY-Binghamton

Description of Expertise:

Decades ago, I studied primary production by Myriophyllum spicatum in Wisconsin. In recent years I focused on the ecology and spread of Utricularia inflata in Adirondack Mountain lakes. My research program has now shifted to wetland and forest ecology with no specific focus on invasive species — but the impacts of beech bark disease, hemlock woolly adelgids, and emerald ash borers will figure into the forest ecological studies.
