Invasive Species Summit Morning Plenary, With Afternoon Session A: Conserving Biodiversity - 162HRT834A
Invasive species are a major threat to biodiversity worldwide and are severely impacting our regional ecosystems. This summit addresses the impacts of invasive species from a global to regional level: what is being done to manage them, how restoring ecosystems can help, and implications for the future. The morning plenary session features prominent speakers in the fields of invasion biology, restoration ecology, and not-for-profit land management. Afternoon concurrent sessions (registered separately) consist of short talks followed by moderated discussions.
