Name: Vermeulen, Nick (Manager)

Institution: USFWS

Description of invasive species management work:

I am a biological technician for the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge and I am responsible for managing invasive species on the approximately 10,000 acres of the refuge. Some of the managed species include common reed, swallow-wort, common buckthorn, Japanese stiltgrass, Japanese knotweed, and flowering rush among others.

Name: Vogler, Donna (Researcher)

Institution: SUNY Oneonta

Description of Expertise:

I conduct floras that include invasive vascular plants and am keenly interested in the ecology of early invasion. My students and I have studied the demographics of spread and developed risk maps for newly invaded Cirsium palustre, Syringa reticulata, and examined gender expresession in Fallopia hybrid swarms.

Name: Ward, Jeffrey (Researcher)

Institution: Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station

Description of Expertise:

My invasive species research has focused on primarily on the control and ecology of Japanese barberry, along with commonly associated co-invasives, to enhance forest regeneration, restore native shrubs and herbaceous species, and to reduce the risk of exposure to ticks infected with Lyme disease. Secondarily, I have examined methods of controlling Japanese stiltgrass and running bamboo.

Name: Whitmore, Mark (Researcher)

Institution: Cornell University

Description of Expertise:

My research is focused primarily on the establishment of biological control of the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA). This work involves understanding the ecology of HWA in different systems so they can be manipulated to enhance predator establishment and production. I am also engaged in developing and monitoring efficacy of chemical controls for HWA and Emerald Ash Borer in forest settings.

Name: Williams, Scott (Researcher)

Institution: The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station

Description of Expertise:

My research centers around Japanese barberry and the favorable microclimate it creates for blacklegged ticks, white-footed mice, and tick-associated pathogens. We are also investigating the impacts of invasive species control and deer herbivory on native and invasive regeneration.
