2022 Webinar Series: A new tool in the toolbox: an update on biological control of introduced Phragmites

February 16, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Dr. Michael J. McTavish is a Mitacs Elevate postdoctoral research fellow working with the Smith Forest Health Lab at the University of Toronto and Ducks Unlimited Canada. His current research includes biological control of non-native invasive plants (Phragmites and garlic mustard) and the ecology of non-native earthworms.”

Presentation Description: Biological control or “biocontrol” of introduced Phragmites offers a self-sustaining, target-specific, and cost-effective tool to supplement existing management options. Since 2019, a pilot program has been developing in Ontario, Canada using the stem-boring moths Archanara neurica and Lenisa geminipuncta. This presentation will provide an update on the pilot program and explore priorities for future research.
