Internship: Plant and insect invasions and novel host use

Detailed Description

Plant and insect invasions and novel host use.

Summary: Plants and insects comprise a large portion of problematic invasive species. The success of these invasions largely depends on the outcomes of plant-insect interactions in which plants that escape herbivores may be more successful invaders, and herbivores that find adequate hosts have the opportunity to establish. This project will explore the dynamics of introduced plant or insect populations, or explore the determinants of their novel interactions.
