Webinar: Invasive Mussel Genomics: Innovations for Control Methods

March 8, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Recorded: March 8, 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time This webinar is part of a miniseries on the genomics of invasive mussels hosted by the Invasive Mussel Collaborative. Part one of the miniseries covers the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's prize competition "Eradication of Invasive Mussels in Open Water." The first prize awarded in this competition proposed a novel genetic modification-based method for control. Presenters: Sherri Pucherelli, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Sherri is a biologist and invasive species research coordinator…

Webinar: Using Boater Data to Inform Risk Models

October 28, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Free

 Recorded October 28, 2020 11:00 am-12:30 pm ET This webinar discusses the development of invasive mussel risk models informed by watercraft inspection and boater movement data. This webinar features the ARMOR model, built in New York to streamline the process of boat inspections for invasive species management, and a predictive model for Minnesota assessing the likelihood of overland transport of invasive mussels on recreational boats. Presenters: Cathy McGlynn and John Marino, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation NYSDEC…
