Harvest of weevil-infested salvinia. Due to changing environmental conditions, biological control might not be self-sustained. We engage with stakeholders to facilitate access to biological control agents.
We communicate with our stakeholders using several methods as part of our program on invasive species and biological control. We cooperate closely with several federal, state, and local institutions working with invasive species management. Thanks to the LSU AgCenter Communications office we have developed websites, factsheets, webinars, short videos, and how-to manuals on invasive species. Graduate students in the laboratory participate actively in the development of non-technical communications as part of their career program.
