Teasing apart invasive worm impacts on native species

Can invasive worms serve as food for native species? How do they alter leaf litter microhabitat? New research offers insight into the potential effects and trophic interactions of jumping worms (Amynthas spp.) and native reptiles and amphibians.

The costs of inaction: Global invasive species spending reveals lack of proactive management

Using the InvaCost database, this study reports the most up-to-date and exhaustive overview of global spending for invasive species management, revealing important insights into spending trends and the cost of inaction.

Sensing the need to bridge the research-practice divide for invasive species detection and monitoring

A team of researchers and practitioners tackles the disconnect between research and application in the field of remote sensing for invasive species, summarizing 40+ years of literature and experience.

Researcher Spotlight: Dr. Meghan Brown

"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.
