The climate is changing rapidly in the northeastern U.S. in ways that are already impacting our way of life. This talk will cover how these changes impact our native biodiversity, and also how we can use gardening as an ecological tool to seed the ecosystems of the future. We will discuss how thoughtful choices about what we plant now can promote native biodiversity while reducing the spread of harmful invasive species.
More about our speaker:
Evelyn Beaury is a PhD candidate in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Her research focuses on the spatial ecology and biogeography of plant invasions. She’s particularly interested in how we can develop more proactive strategies for invasive species management and policy. Her current research focuses on the spread of invasive ornamental plants and understanding continental patterns in the impacts of plant invasions.
