The Quest To Understand (And Manage) Invasive Phragmites Online
Since the 1970s, the invasive reed Phragmites australis has been taking over wetlands across the U.S. In this virtual science talk, Smithsonian Environmental Research Center ecologists Melissa McCormick and Dennis Whigham will explore what set the stage for its explosive invasion, and share discoveries from over a decade of Smithsonian research on Phragmites. They will also highlight efforts to manage it, and discuss public perceptions of this not-so-friendly European visitor.
This talk will be recorded. By signing up online, you will be able to join live and receive a link to a closed-captioned recording after the event.
