Distributed graduate seminar, economic impacts of non-native forest pests and pathogens in North America

Principal Investigators:

Juliann E. Aukema

The objective of this distributed graduate seminar is to determine the extent to which it is possible to quantify ecological and economic impacts of non-native forest pests and pathogens. The seminar will involve groups of students at seven universities around the United States. Each university-based seminar will have two leaders, an ecologist and an economist. Each university will select one to several forest pests or pathogens of local to regional concern. They will gather key data and evaluate ecological and economic impacts. We will bring together... more
