Webinar: How Does Ohio Get So Many Non-Native Insects?
Join OSU's Forest Entomologist, Sam Ward to explore why we have so many insect invaders. Globalization has facilitated the unintentional and international movement of insects. Many of these invading species have been forest insects, due to the exchange of live plants and widespread use of wood packaging materials in global trade. This talk will cover the patterns and processes that have shaped forest insect invasions in the United States, emphasizing the state of Ohio.
