Invasive Species Lunchtime Talks

Invasive species are non-native species that arrive in a new area, spread rapidly without their native predators and pests, and cause environmental or economic harm, or harm to human health. We bring you presentations from scientists and managers about invasive species threatening California's ecosystems. Hear from the experts, and discuss the issues!
