Northern Research Station

October 2015 - International Research Collaboration

Non-native forest pests have been with us since colonists arrived in the New World loaded with dreams, grit and perhaps the continent’s first non-native invasive insects. The Northeast’s diverse forests and the industrialization and proliferation of cargo imports are two key factors that have resulted in the presence of invasive forest insects in the Northeast longer and in greater numbers than anywhere else in the nation.

Controlling or even stopping a non-native species demands research on an international scale. This month, we feature a scientist, research, a product and a partnership that highlight international research at the Northern Research Station.
