The School of Biology and Ecology presents
Dr. Scott Williams
Connecticut Agriculture Experiment Station
Dr. Scott Williams is an Associate Scientist in the Department of Forestry and Horticulture at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. His field of expertise is wildlife biology. He has been working specifically with overabundant white-tailed deer herds and their impact on native and managed ecosystems, orchards, gardens, and landscape plantings. His current research includes the role of overabundant deer in shaping native ecosystems, specifically the interactions between overabundant deer, proliferation of invasive plant species, and blacklegged ticks.
All are welcome! Refreshments served at 3:00 PM. Sponsored by the School of Biology & Ecology as part of the 2018 Spring Seminar Series
