Panel on Invasive Plants & Ecosystem Restoration September 21

Who’s Driving?
Invasive Plant Species as Drivers, Passengers, and Backseat Drivers

Thursday, September 21
6:00 to 7:30 p.m
Nick’s English Hut (2nd floor Hump Room)
Bloomington, IN

Join us for an invigorating panel discussion on invasive plants and ecosystem restoration. Exotic invasive plants, animals, and microbes can decimate the biological diversity of ecological systems and cause billions of dollars per year of economic harm and harm to human health. But invasive species proliferate for different reasons, and understanding these differences is critically important for success in managing invasive species and promoting richly biodiverse ecosystems. 

Panelists are Dawn Slack, The Nature Conservancy of Indiana; Dr. Jonathan Bauer, Michigan State University; and Dr.Susan Kalisz, University of Tennessee.

Sponsored by Themester 2017, Diversity-Diffrence-Otherness. Organized by Indiana University Dept. of Biology, Monroe County-Identify and Reduce Invasive Species (MC-IRIS), Bloomington Urban Woodland Project, Indiana Invasive Species Council, The Nature Conservancy, and Southern Indiana Cooperative Invasive Management (SICIM).
