How do plant species invasions affect water quality services performed by Great Lakes coastal wetlands
Major Goals and Objectives
- Characterize the relationships between invasive species and water quality ecosystem services in Great Lakes area wetlands
- Develop site-specific management recommendations for optimizing ecosystem services based on improved understanding of invasive species effects of denitrification.
- Provide educational and research opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students centered on improving the scientific basis for stewardship of Great Lakes area wetlands
