Join ecologist Ted Elliman to find out why invasive plant species have been getting such bad lip service from botany, ecology, horticulture, and conservation professionals. In this two-day online course, students will learn the basic ecological problems surrounding these aggressive and tenacious plants, the complicated (and sometimes political) issues surrounding invasive plant species, and the process by which a plant is labeled “invasive” in the first place. Finally, through virtual images of specimens and independent fieldwork, students will familiarize themselves with some of New England’s most common invasive species. The instructor will set up individual student office hours for Q&A regarding findings and inquiries of visited sites.
