Description ALIEN INVADERS FROM THE PLANET EARTH, presented by Pamela Kittelson, Associate Professor, Department of Biology. Invasive plant species cause at least $40 billion a year in economic losses. Invasive exotic species can terrorize the plant world by forming dense monocultures, reducing the abundance of native species and negatively altering soil fertility, plant-animal interactions and fire regimes. Pam will differentiate invasive species from benign exotic species and focus on Minnesota invasive species including how they got here and why they do so well. She will discuss the impact that invasive species have on the local environment, how we might limit the damage and why gardeners and sportsmen are the front line in preventing and limiting new invasions.
