About 20 SUNY ESF water stewards are among hundreds of others who’ve fanned out to waterways across the state this week hoping to prevent the spread of invasive species.  It’s called the “Aquatic Invasive Species Landing Blitz,” where the stewards ask boaters if they can perform an inspection as they exit the water.  Kim Schulz  is Assistant Professor in the department of Environmental Forest biology at SUNY ESF.

There’s a place on Syracuse University’s South Campus where biologists are trying to figure out how woody plants behave and work. 

   Associate Professor of Biology Jason Fridley opens the gate into a garden plot that looks more like overgrown brush under a shade cloth.  It’s actually an outdoor lab for native and non-native plants.
