Threatened and Endangered Species and Invasive Species Research Update

This technical session focused on SERDP and ESTCP’s research at the Readiness-Ecosystem Nexus, where research and development focus on DoD managed ecosystems, threatened and endangered species, and the control of invasive species. Many DoD landscapes are unique and increasingly rare habitats in the United States. Technology development focused on the control of Invasive Species is also an important focus within the Readiness-Ecosystem Nexus. Invasive species pose a challenge DoD’s stewardship responsibilities.
