Bethany Bradley, assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, will present "Plant Invasions and Global Change, Lessons from Biogeography" at 2 p.m., Oct. 23 in the Hardin Hall auditorium.
Spatial models of invasive plants are often used to forecast invasion risk by correlating the geographies of species distributions with environmental conditions. But, the meaning of ‘invasion risk’ varies through different stages of invasion. This seminar will explore applications of biogeographical analysis for predicting invasion risk at the introduction, establishment and impact stages using examples of invasive plants in the U.S.
