Invasive Species: What Belongs Where?
February 20 | Dr. Matthew Chew, Arizona State University
Dr. Chew will explain how the concepts of alien and invasive species were developed and how they have been used over time, then lead a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of these ideas as a basis for laws, regulations, and management actions. In addition to learning about particular species and habitats, we will discuss the history, development, and dynamics of the Prescott area ecosystem, consider the destructive and creative roles humans have played (and continue to play) in local ecological matters, and take a peek into the future to see what changes we ought to expect.
