Non-native invasive species are a threat to biodiversity in Missouri. Unchecked,
invasive species lead to the decline of natural areas, compete with native
species, and have a serious detrimental economic impact. This workshop features
concurrent sessions providing information on invasive aquatic and terrestrial
organisms, as well as other un-wanted species.
