Biography

Elizabeth Sellers is a Technical Information Specialist – Biology, with the USGS Core Science Systems Mission Area. She joined the USGS in December 2003 after completing a year as a USGS Volunteer for Science for the Invasive Species science program of the Biological Resources Discipline (now Ecosystems Mission Area). She completed her B.Sc. in Tropical Botany and Geomorphology at James Cook University, Townsville campus, Australia in 1995; and completed post-graduate research in 1996 on the compensatory growth habits and ecophysiology of the non-native invasive 'woody weed' Chinee[sic] apple (Zizyphus mauritiana) for a BSc. Honors degree
