Keynote Speaker: Randy Westbrooks: Invasive Species Prevention Specialist U.S. Geological Survey. South Carolina.
Purpose: Along the Atlantic Coast of the United States, coastal dune and maritime forest habitats have been significantly altered or degraded by human activities. Since many of the plant species found in these habitats are found nowhere else, reduction of these areas is making these species increasingly rare. Exotic and invasive species pose a major threat to ecological function in these dwindling habitats. Professionals dealing with these ecosystems rarely have the opportunity to meet, exchange information, and share expertise. This conference will bring together interested academics, managers, and environmental professionals and practitioners to share information about effective management strategies and work together to generate recommendations for policies and strategies to effectively combat the spread of these invasive species.
Presentations: In addition to the keynote and other invited speakers, panel discussions, and breakout sessions, there is room for a limited number of submitted presentations, as well as a poster session showcasing work that addresses one or more of the following conference themes:
