Wednesday, November 8, 2017. 3:30PM. Webinar: Implications of climate change for invasive species. Bethany Bradley, UMASS Amherst. Sponsored by Northeast Climate Science Center. More information here.
Invasive species and climate change are two of the most prominent forms of anthropogenic global change identified by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. These two global changes are likely to interact in a number of ways. Climate change could increase invasion risk by increasing growth rates, advancing phenology, and increasing weather-related disturbances. This seminar will review how climate change influences invasive species and how those changes might affect invasive species management.
