"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.
“There is a wealth of ecological data out there that can be applied to answer questions far beyond the original intentions.” says Jeff, whose studies aim to unlock the drivers of and resistance to invasions.
Dr. Matt Ayres of Dartmouth College is asking the important questions of what limits forest pest distribution and how climate change will influence ranges of native and non-native forest pests.
The fourth annual Regional Invasive Species & Climate Change (RISCC) Symposium will be held virtually via Zoom on January 20th...
