ENV 509 Ecological Invasions and Biological Control

Prerequisites: ENV 501, ENV 502 and ENV 505. (Second semester—odd years/3 credits) 

Invasions by exotic species of plants and animals are one of the major environmental problems in the world today. Invasions will be examined from the perspective of the invading species and from the community being invaded. The potential for controlling these exotic species with biological control agents will be evaluated, and biological control will be compared with other potential control methods.
