Dr. Lisa Rew to present on invasive plants as part of IoE Distinguished Lecturer Series

Dr. Lisa Rew

A Montana State University researcher will discuss her insights gained from studying invasive plants during a November talk on campus.

Dr. Lisa Rew, professor of invasive plant ecology and management in the MSU Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences in the College of Agriculture, will deliver “Invasive Plants: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, in MSU’s Procrastinator Theater. Light refreshments will be served prior to the talk. The event is free and open to the public as part of the Montana Institute on Ecosystems’ Distinguished Lecturer Series.

Through her research, Rew works to improve understanding of plant invasions and develop effective, integrated ways to prioritize management, both locally and around the globe. She and her students work in a range of ecosystems, from crops and rangelands to mountaintops. Their research results have been published in journals, book chapters and Extension publications. Rew has a bachelor’s degree in environmental science from the University of Southampton and a doctorate in applied plant ecology from the University of Reading.

The Montana Institute on Ecosystems is a multi-institutional community dedicated to understanding complex ecosystems and the interconnectedness of people and nature. For more information, visit montanaioe.org.
