Student Scientists Present at Invasive Species Conference
The Denali Elementary first grade classes of Christine Villano and Pat Tellep attended the Annual Invasive Species Conference at the Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge and presented original research in the poster sessions. The students’ research compared the rate of leaf loss of native Alaskan wild rose and invasive European bird cherry.
The Annual Invasive Species Conference was held from November 5 -7 and hosted by the Alaska Committee for Noxious and Invasive Plant Management and the Alaska Invasive Species Working Group. The event rotates each year between Anchorage, Fairbanks and various rural communities and offers expert presentations on emerging invasive species science and management issues.
Well done, students – and congratulations on your presentation to the scientific community!
