ISC Webinar: Plasticity drives extreme cold tolerance of emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) during a polar vortex

May 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

New research, 'Plasticity drives extreme cold tolerance of emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) during a polar vortex', indicates emerald ash borer (EAB) can adapt to Canadian winters and can tolerate extremely cold winter temperatures (-50°C). Chris MacQuarrie, Research Scientist at the Great Lakes Forestry Centre, and Meghan Duell, Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Western Ontario, will explain these recent findings and discuss EAB management.

Queen’s University Environmental DNA Workshop

July 25 @ 8:00 am - July 29 @ 5:00 pm

Environmental DNA (eDNA) is becoming a mainstay of non-invasive, reliable, and cost-effective surveys of at-risk and invasive species, pathogen detection, and biodiversity assessment. These approaches rely on the fact that organisms leave their DNA in the environment, making it possible to detect their presence without capture or even direct observation. Reliable eDNA data depend on field and lab rigorous technique because significant biases can occur through the process from the sampling to the data processing, and they greatly influence species…
