Readiness-Ecosystem, Threatened and Endangered Species and Invasive Species (TES-I)

DoD manages more than 400 threatened and endangered species and over 550 at-risk species on its installations while supporting critical testing and training activities. At the same time invasive species not only often threaten endangered species, they slow strategic mobility and logistics. This technical session provided information on SERDP & ESTCP's research at the Readiness-Ecosystem Nexus where research and development focuses on DoD managed ecosystems, threatened and endangered species, and the control of invasive species.
