Call for Arctic Research Seminar Registration: Community Science for Informed Response at the Arctic Invasion Front
Wednesday 11 May 2022
Location Online

Call for Registration
Arctic Research Seminar Series

Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS)

The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) invites registration for the next Arctic Research Seminar featuring Tobias (Toby) Schwoerer (International Arctic Research Center, University of Alaska Fairbanks). Dr. Schwoerer's presentation, titled Batten Down the Hatches: Community Science for Informed Response at the Arctic Invasion Front, will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, 11 May 2022 at 9:00 a.m. AKDT (1:00 p.m. EDT).

Seminar Abstract:

The Arctic is undergoing large-scale accelerating changes including the introduction and expansion of invasive species. We are in a unique position to prevent new introductions and spread of existing invaders by adopting policies and actions aimed at prevention, early detection, and rapid response to minimize impacts on ecosystems, communities, food security, and northern economies. But resource managers often face decisions without having adequate data and resources at hand. Community science presents one way to fill knowledge gaps and inform decisions. This presentation will showcase examples related to freshwater aquatic invasive species management in Alaska aimed at understanding the long-distance pathways, human-induced spread, and informing agency prioritization with applied economics. Implications for Arctic conservation policy and future research needs will be discussed.

Registration is required for this event. Instructions for accessing the webinar will be sent to registrants prior to the event.
