Invasive species often cause extensive ecological and economic disturbances by out-competing and thereby replacing native species. The goal of this project is to general species-specific management techniques that will reduce the competitive advantages of invasive species and allow native species to recolonize and reestablish natural communities.


Students should be at least juniors, have taken or are presently taking genetics, and have a minimum 3.3 GPA in science and math courses. A two semester commitment is a minimum requirement.
