Control of Giant Hogweed, and other invasive species, by Karen Muller.
19:30-21:00, Thursday 21st March.
Fifth of our winter series of talks. Karen Muller will give a talk on "Control of Giant Hogweed, and other invasive species".
Invasive non-native species (INNS) currently present one of the biggest threats to our countryside, our native wildlife, our economy and in some cases directly to our health.
The Scottish Invasive Species Initiative (HLF funded and SNH led) is one of the largest invasive non-native species control projects in Britain targeting Giant Hogweed, Himalayan Balsam, Japanese Knotweed, White Butterbur, American Skunk Cabbage and the American Mink along water courses.
This presentation, given by project officer Karen Müller, will cover the problems and management solutions associated with the target INNS species, the innovative work and trials, as well as the community and volunteer approach that is used, and how to get involved with the project.
All talks take place in the University of Aberdeen's Zoology Building, Tillydrone Avenue.
