Welcome to the 2015 UVM Ecology and Management of Invasive Species Wiki.Edit
This wiki hosts collaboration from students taking the course FOR/NR 285 at the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at University of Vermont, Burlington VT USA. Kimberly Wallin and Lucia Orantes are the course instructors, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com respectively.
In this course we will review the process and underlying mechanisms of invasions, effects of invasions on communities and ecosystems, and management techniques. The focus will be on conceptual frameworks, research approaches, and the overall process of practicing science.
