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.
