“Native Ants & Alien Plants”
Thursday, October 24 at 5:00pm

St. Mary’s Biology professor, Dr. Mary Ann McLean will share her research on ants and the spread of the invasive plant species Thesium which first appeared in Fish Creek Provincial Park, and no where else in Canada, 20 years ago. Her talk addresses questions such as: How do plants move around? What happens when an alien plant arrives in an ecosystem? How do other species in the ecosystem react to the new species? What difference does this make?
