"Promoting ecosystem restoration by experimentally testing ecological theory: case studies using exotic invasions and endangered plants"

Invasions are around us: from bacteria and viruses that proliferate in us to zebra mussels infiltrating midwestern waterways to purple loosestrife along our highways. Why are invaders able to infiltrate habitats and how can we restore environments to pre-invasion conditions? These types of questions will be addressed in a special seminar this Thursday.

The Biology department is pleased to host Gustavus graduate Dr. Bill Rogers (Chem '91, Bio '92), Professor in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. Dr. Rogers is a plant ecologist who studies invasive species, endangered plant conservation, and ecological restoration.
