Invasive species have the potential to drastically change our Texas landscape. This presentation will cover the threats posed by invasive species, as well as responses to the threat. The Invaders of Texas citizen scientist program will be introduced, as one of several ways you can get involved in managing invasive species. As the Invasive Species Program Coordinator at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Dr. Hans Landel manages the Invaders of Texas citizen scientist program, manages the Texasinvasives.org website, and collaborates with other agencies and organizations in managing invasive species. He has performed conservation research both in the U.S. and internationally.
