NYISRI interviews Dr. Scott McArt who leads research on the ecology of plant-pollinator interactions in natural and managed systems, and helps advance our knowledge of pesticide risks to pollinators.

Public gardens are in a unique position to form a sentinel network to aid in detecting potential invasive species. This study informs how public gardens can collectively contribute data for potential new invaders.
NYISRI interviews Dr. David Wong, who seeks better solutions to managing aquatic invasive species, exploring novel tools like detection dogs.
To round out the year, we’re sharing an approach that TIEs together actionable research with invasive species management and policy decisions, called Translational Invasion Ecology (TIE).
An international team of 19 researchers identify and summarize four critical priority areas to better advance invasion science in an era of rapid global change.
"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.
