Tuesday, May 17 - Evening Lecture: Conquest of phragmites -- Why a Non-native Reed Began Dominating Chesapeake Wetlands
7 - 8 p.m., Schmidt Conference Center, Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, 647 Contees Wharf Road, Edgewater
Lecture by Dennis Whigham of SERC. A European strain of Common Reed (Phragmites australis) is rapidly becoming the dominant plant in many Chesapeake Bay tidal and non-tidal wetlands. What are the causes of the recent expansion of a plant that has been present in the U.S. for hundreds of years? What are the potential consequences of the invasion, and what can be done about it? It turns out most of the answers are directly connected to human activities in or near the Chesapeake Bay. No admission fee.
