The webinar will be recorded for anyone unable to attend the live session.
This presentation will focus on the biology and management (both chemical and non-chemical) of ten common invasive plants in the northeastern United States and southern Canada. Species covered include Japanese knotweed, buckthorn, swallowworts, honeysuckles, bindweeds, multiflora rose, and Japanese stiltgrass.
Dr. DiTommaso's primary areas of scholarship focus on the biology, ecology, and management of important agricultural weeds and introduced invasive plants of natural and semi-natural areas in the northeastern U.S. and southern Canada. DiTommaso has published over 145 scientific articles and 12 book chapters. Most recently, he is a co-author of the book: Weeds of the Northeast – 2nd Edition (Cornell Univ. Press) and Manage Weeds on Your Farm: A Guide to Ecological Strategies (SARE). He has served as Editor-in-Chief of the scientific journal Invasive Plant Science and Management since 2015.
