Interactions between species invasions and climate change necessitate proactive decision making that will determine what our ecosystems look like in the future. This talk will cover how climate change affects species across time and space, and how we can use climate-smart gardening to minimize the spread of invasive species while promoting native biodiversity.
About the Speaker:
Evelyn Beaury received her PhD from the University of Massachusetts Amherst where she studied the spatial ecology and biogeography of plant invasions in the context of climate change. This work incorporates stakeholder decision-making, thinking about how human activities influence invasions and the management/policy decisions we can make to prevent further spread. Evelyn is now a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University, where she has broadened her research to think spatially about how we can increase carbon storage via changes in land use and land management.
