Invasive Species Impacts on Biodiversity

Presented by:
Robert Lambe, Invasive Species Committee

Invasive Species Impacts on Biodiversity focuses on scientific evidence of negative ecological effects of alien invasive species as well as research and mitigation measures planned or underway to respond to these threats. The presentation highlights several aquatic and terrestrial invasive species that demonstrate direct and indirect impacts on domestic plant, aquatic and forest species. The session will provide conference participants with an understanding of the Invasive Species Centre’s mission and promote discussion about the critical role of partnerships within the invasive species network locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
