About us

We are a interdisciplinary multi-institutional team interested in understanding processes and patterns of human-mediated invasions. We understand the challenges faced when dealing with the complexity of interactions between human and ecological systems. Thus, our goal is developing approaches and generating data to better understand the processes involved.

Because of the nature of the institutions involved, we seek to generate approaches that have applicability for agencies and managers in charge of preventing invasions. In other words, we realize that a thorough understanding of the processes involved in human-mediated invasions is a long-term endeavor. However, we also understand that managers face a short-term challenge in preventing invasions. Addressing both pieces of the equation is thus a central idea of our approach.

We welcome anyone actively engaged in research in this area and are interested in establishing collaborations for current or future projects. To join us, contact any member of the core group.
