Global invaders project

Project Description : 

Spatial ecology lab research aims to understand what makes invasive plants invasive by learning more about the geography of their native ranges. Students involved in this project will participate in ongoing data compilation from the scientific literature to identify plants that are invasive somewhere in the world. BURA students will also participate in weekly spatial ecology lab reading groups to learn more about invasive species biogeography. If you are interested in learning more about how geographical research can intersect with biology, please apply!
