2011 Vermont Monitoring Cooperative Annual Meeting

Invaders in Vermont Forests

Appropriately held on Halloween, this meeting focused on invasive species in Vermont. Dean Thomas Vogelmann of UVM College of Agriculture and life scientists gave a fascinating talk about how Climate Change favors certain species, many not native to Vermont. The Commissioners of DEC and FPR weighed in on invasives and there was news from VMC Cooperators. A panel discussion on invasives was moderated by RSENR’s Deanne Wang.
