Two interesting audio clips this week:
- The Great Lakes Radio Consortium has a clip about the effects of the emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) on the nursery industry in the Great Lakes region (hint: it's not good). Also check out their report from last week about the fact that budget cuts are impacting the ability to control the ash borer at the federal and state level.
- NPR reported about efforts to control invasive plants in Arizona, and how these efforts are fueled (ha ha) by the increased threat of wildfires. [posted to ALIENS-L]
