Invasive Species Policy and Biology: Patterns in Eastern US State Laws & Opportunities for an Integrative Database Using AI Technology [Webinar]

Date: April 27, 2023
Time: 03:00 PM ET

State-to-state regulations on introduced and invasive species can vary considerably on the landscape. To examine patterns and continuity concerning what and how invasive species are regulated, the Invasive Species Working Group at Virginia Tech has compiled data on legal and regulatory frameworks for introduced and invasive species for 21 eastern US states. With this data, they are working to develop a comprehensive database that will serve as a hub for invasion science and policy. They aim to integrate next-generation data system architecture and artificial intelligence (AI) models needed to build a sustainable, informative, and accessible data delivery system.

Join Virginia Tech researcher, Dr. Emily Reed, to learn about this project and future project expansions and applications. This talk is hosted in partnership with the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. Closed captions will be provided via Zoom.
