2022 Webinar Series: Flooded Phragmites australis provides habitat for Great Lakes coastal wetland fishes; Mapping invasive Phragmites australis in Lake Erie wetlands (Canada) using multispectral satellite images

April 6 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 pm

The third webinar of our 2022 series will be April 6th 10:30-11:30 AM EST. In this webinar, we will be featuring talks from two different researchers.

Flooded Phragmites australis provides habitat for Great Lakes coastal wetland fishes
Presented by: Melanie Croft-White
Presentation Summary: The goal of this research was to determine how fish community composition, diversity and abundance differs in Phragmites, Typha and Schoenoplectus vegetation. We found that although there were no differences in species richness or abundance there were differences in the fish species composition between the three vegetation types, with more Cyprinids found in the Schoenoplectus and more Centrarchids found in Phragmites

Mapping invasive Phragmites australis in Lake Erie wetlands (Canada) using multispectral satellite images
Presented by: Prabha Rupasinghe
Presentation Summary: Phragmites australis is one of the worst plant invaders in the wetlands of North America. Remote sensing is the most cost-effective method to track its spread given its widespread distribution and rapid colonization rate. This presentation will discuss new remote sensing-based approaches to quantify and monitor both high and low density Phragmites stands using moderate resolution Landsat 7/8 and Sentinel 2 and high-resolution WorldView 2/3 satellite images in Lake Erie wetlands of Canada.
