Bio Control of Invasives with Lisa Tewsbury
Lisa Tewsbury is an entomologist at the University of Rhode Island, and Director of the URI Biological Control Lab. The lab conducts classical biological control projects to manage invasive weeds and exotic insects. Classical biological control is a long-term management strategy integrated with other control methods for invasive pests. Past projects of the lab include purple loosestrife and lily leaf lantern fly. Lisa’s talk will review the methods involved in classical biological control and provide an update on some of the past and current projects.
Main Club Public Programs take place the second Wednesdays of September-November and January-May. In October we meet in the evening, and in April we have both day and evening meetings.
