Breaking Down Barriers to Proactive and Consistent Risk Assessments of Invasive Plants in the Northeast U.S

February 24, 2021 - 12:00pm

Preventing new invasive plants is most effective when management is consistent across jurisdictional boundaries and has a strong focus on early detection and rapid response. But our recent analyses of regulated plant lists show that invasive plant policy is neither consistent nor proactive. Here, we use a case study of risk assessments from Northeast states to develop recommendations for species to evaluate and ways to evaluate them that could lead to more consistent and proactive policy.

Sustainable Agriculture at College of Menominee Nation

March 17, 2021 - 12:00pm

Agriculture takes place in ecosystems, from fairly intact to highly modified. Adaptation to climate is key to success in agroecosystems, and this success is also key to maintaining many ecosystem functions outside areas of food production. We will explore these relationships, the ways that they are considered by several Indigenous cultures, and how they are being embedded in the new Sustainable Agriculture degree program at College of Menominee Nation.

The Future of Aquatic Flows – Connecting Future Hydrologic Extremes to Aquatic Needs

Refugia are important but are they connected? Mapping well-connected climate refugia for species of conservation concern in the Northeastern U.S.

May 5, 2021 - 12:00pm

As the climate continues to change, vulnerable wildlife species will need specific management strategies to help them adapt to these changes. One such strategy focuses on the concept of refugia, areas that are buffered from the impacts of climate change and therefore remain suitable habitats for vulnerable species over time. Refugia stand in contrast to other habitats, which are impacted by climate change and may become unsuitable for vulnerable species.
