The Hidden Invasive Species: Multiple Roles of Native Invasive Plants

Learn about native invasive plant species that are often difficult to detect and usually only noticed when they cause a problem for agriculture. Dr. Ward will consider some of the main causes and consequences of range expansion by native invasives for carbon sequestration (soil quality) as well as how the process affects the conservation of non-encroaching native species through the natural process of succession.  Given the ecological effects of native invasives, it is important to acknowledge and understand their impacts on natural communities. Hear about the research that has been conducted in Africa, as well as at Kent State University.

Please Register here. The Program is free to attend and open to all.
