Emerald Ash Borer University Webinar – Responses of non-native species to climatic change and their implications for management
December 10, 2020
Join Webinar
Speaker: Sam Ward, Mississippi State University
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) University has scheduled Facebook LIVE sessions every Thursday to answer your questions. The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) University is an educational and outreach tool to educate others about the emerald ash borer, an invasive insect pest responsible for killing millions of ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) in North America. The EABU Dec 3rd session will be sharing: the establishment and subsequent abundance of non-native species, such as introduced pests and the natural enemies imported to combat them, is in part determined by the climatic suitability of the novel habitat. For non-native species that have been established for decades, shifting climatic regimes could cause deviations from historical patterns of abundance. Discussion will take place regarding some potential mechanisms for how climate change might alter host-parasitoid dynamics, using the invasion of, and importation biological program against, larch casebearer in North America as a case study.
