A Balanced Approach to Chemical Control of Invasive Plants: How can we effectively remove invasive plants while keeping native ones healthy?
Verena Sesin is a Ph.D. candidate in the Environmental and Life Sciences program at Trent University in Peterborough. She is originally from Germany, where she completed her B.A. in Science Journalism and M.Sc. in Ecotoxicology. Her current research interest lies in pesticide effects and fate in wetlands. She aims to foster critical thinking on how we can effectively manage invasive plants with pesticides, while minimizing risks to nearby native plants. Verena calls herself a “gardener for science”, as she spends a lot of time growing plants for her experiments in the greenhouse and outdoors. She also enjoys communicating environmental science facts through blogging for the “EcotoxBlog” as well as circulating her "Go Green tips" newsletter among graduate students at Trent.
Everyone is welcome to this free presentation which is delivered as part of a speaker series initiative by the Northumberland Land Trust and the Lone Pine Land Trust.
