AIS Area of Interest

Dr. Newman is passionate about aquatic ecology and understanding the interaction between plants, invertebrates, and fish. His work with MAISRC involves restoring native plant communities after invasive plants have been introduced. Currently, two of the biggest invasive plant threats are Eurasian watermilfoil and curly-leaf pondweed. Dr. Newman is evaluating sustainable methods of bio control involving weevils (and other insects) as well as the more traditional application of herbicides.
