• Invasive Species

    any species, including its seeds, eggs, spores, or other biological material capable of propagating that species, that is not native to that ecosystem; and whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health
  • Integrated Pest Management

    the implementation of diverse methods of pest controls, paired with monitoring to reduce unnecessary pesticide applications
  • Forest Health

    practices and management that maintain individual tree health as well as stand and ecosystem health from invasive species, insects, pathogens, antroprogenics and disturbances

Our Programs

The Center develops and utilizes partnerships and information technology to advance invasive species management, integrated pest management, and forest health.

We support efforts to detect pests, respond to new introductions, document changes and manage the health of our ecosystems. Solutions to these problems require collaborations that transcend traditional disciplinary, departmental, institutional and agency approaches, as well as state and national borders.

By providing ready access to relevant information and tools, we empower stakeholders to make cost-effective management decisions that minimize disruptions to non-target organisms in the ecosystem and effectively control pest organisms.

  • Developing collaborations among university, state, regional, national and international governmental and non-governmental partners
  • Integrating information, conducting applied research and developing programs
  • Producing websites, smartphone applications, publications, videos, presentations, and other information technology tools
  • Providing a clearinghouse for content and resources
  • Conducting outreach and training to promote public awareness
