September 14, 2020: Murder Hornets, Varroa Mites and Snakeheads: Invasive Species and the Reality of our Global Ecosystem

Date: September 14, 2020

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us in welcoming Samuel Ramsey, Ph.D., an entomologist at the University of Maryland, for a virtual talk about the types of invasive species in our neighborhood and in our greater global ecosystem. This event is hosted by the Audubon Naturalist Society as part of the Naturalist Hour series.

Murder hornets, fire ants, varroa mites, snakehead fish, feral pigs, brown marmorated stinkbugs, Japanese knotweed! A host of organisms now call our ecosystem home and we’re just beginning to realize the broader impacts of these invasions. North America has also exported nuisances of our own to rest of the world. Learn what makes a species likely to invade and what individual behaviors and policies can prevent invasions and address their aftermath.
