Climate Change & Invasive Species Webinar to Discuss Potential Impacts on the Great Lakes

12:00 pm, Mon February 27, 2012 –

The Ohio State University Climate Change Outreach Team will present “Climate Change & Invaders: Sources of Uncertainty in Managing the Great Lakes Region” on Tuesday, March 20.  Cindy Kolar of the US Geological Survey’s Fisheries and Aquatic Endangered Resources Program will discuss invasive species found in the Great Lakes region, the potential impact of climate change on these species, and research and management adaptations that will become necessary to address invasives under future climate conditions in the region.

The webinar, which is part of the Global Change, Local Impact webinar series, will be held on March 20 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Attendance is free, but registration is required to receive log-in information. Visit changingclimate.osu.edu to sign up.

Cindy Kolar is a Science Advisor in the Fisheries & Aquatic Endangered Resources Program of the US Geological Survey. She has studied invasive species for almost two decades and is interested in how global stressors interact to affect ecosystems.  She grew up in and around the Great Lakes.

The OSU Climate Change Outreach Team is a partnership among multiple departments within The Ohio State University, including OSU Extension, Ohio Sea Grant, the Department of Agricultural, Environmental & Development Economics, and the School of Environment & Natural Resources, to help localize the climate change issue by bringing research and resources to Ohioans and Great Lakes residents. More information about the team’s work is available at changingclimate.osu.edu .
