INCIDENTALS - ADDITIONAL INVOLVEMENT IN INVASIVE SPECIES ISSUES
- Development of criteria for listing species invasive and potentially invasive within a geographic area. These criteria have been adopted in both CT and MA and modified for use in other New England states.
- Prepared the Non-native Invasive and Potentially Invasive Vascular Plants in Connecticut list (Distributed by DEP and the CT Invasive Plant Working Group.)
- Prepared the Draft List of Non-native Invasive and Potentially Invasive Vascular Plants in New England.
- Given many talks on conservation of biodiversity, imperiled species, and invasive plant biology throughout New England and the Northeast.
