Michael Baum said: “It’s prudent of municipalities to avoid having people have direct contact with Roundup,” External link

Doug Johnson said: “Scientific-based risk is one thing; if it’s public perception, that’s another,” External link

Doug Johnson said: “It’s a touchy topic for us to talk about because we’re environmentalists in favor of using glyphosate,” “I think stopping using glyphosate in public picnic areas is good to remove that anxiety-producing practice. When it comes to 100-percent removal, that’s where there should be an examination. We do feel that herbicides are a useful tool in the toolbox” External link

Denise White said: “We take aquatic nuisance species seriously, and we stay vigilant,” “Staff performs an average of 6,000 inspections each year, including five to six high-risk inspections of watercraft entering from out-of-state or from mussel-infested waters each month during the summer” External link

denverpost Tuesday, July 23, 2019 7:10:00 AM CEST

Denise White said: “Everyone who enjoys boating, fishing and other types of water recreation has a role to help avoid introducing aquatic nuisance species,” “These ‘aquatic hitchhikers’ hide on all items that are common in the water when recreating — clothing, watercraft, fishing gear, even pets. People can help by thinking ‘clean, drain and dry:’ inspect gear to avoid transporting an invasive species, drain excess water from equipment, and disinfect by drying for at least ten days before bringing to another body of water” External link

Mr Lee says: "Our modelling shows these population ‘sinks’ could be the vital missing link," "We factored in over-fishing and predation by trout and while those things made a big difference, once we factored in dispersal among rivers and lower breeding rates from poorer quality habitat, then it clearly showed how the fish became extinct so fast" External link

Greg Moore said: "It's going to be interesting to see now, after those years have gone by, whether those populations of theirs have rebounded or stayed suppressed," External link

Greg Moore said: "They can survive out of water for weeks on end. They can survive in fresh water," External link

Lee Hannah says: “We really have to up our game because we have numbers of species from sharks to rays that are headed toward extinction from fishery,” “We know that we’ve been late to the game to get marine protected areas and other conservation measures in place in the marine realm” External link

Lee Hannah says: “We know that the best way to protect species is to get habitat conserved,” “Freshwater is by far the most critical, terrestrial on land and we need to be doing this before the window closes in the next 10 or 20 years … It’s ambitious, but if we want to prevent these extinctions, that’s the sort of number we’ve gotta shoot for” External link

Colin Simpfendorfer said: “To prevent losing these ray families, it is critical that governments immediately establish and enforce species protections, bycatch mitigation programmes, marine protected areas, and international trade controls. Educational initiatives focused on Rhino Ray identification, status, and safe-release protocols for animals captured incidentally are also urgently needed at the local level to effectively implement protections,” External link

Russ Mittermeier said: “West Africa is one of the very highest priority areas on Earth for primate conservation. The combination of forest destruction and heavy bushmeat hunting – probably the highest level of this latter threat anywhere in the word – has pushed a number of primate species there to the brink of extinction,” External link

William Darwall said: “The world’s freshwater fish species, which number almost 18,000, are undergoing a dramatic and largely unrecognised global decline, as made apparent in the high levels of extinction threat to freshwater fish species in Japan and Mexico,” External link

Erik Larson says: "We used satellite imagery and grueling on-the-ground surveys to look at what was happening with invasive plants after a series of windstorms -- a tornado in 2006, a derecho in 2009, and another tornado in 2017 -- hit southern Illinois forests," External link

Melissa Daniels says: "It was hands-down one of the most difficult things I've ever done, and I do a lot of difficult things, like ski mountaineering, long backpacking trips, and mountain climbing. Illinois summers are brutal, but they're even more difficult when you are walking up steep hills, climbing over logs that are half your height, pulling off two dozen ticks a day, and battling stinging nettle and poison ivy," "But it's so beautiful and we were seeing places that most people will never see" External link

sciencedaily Thursday, July 18, 2019 6:16:00 PM CEST

Melissa Daniels says: "Since invasive plants decreased over time, some might interpret that as the forest healing on its own, and that they don't need to worry about it. The issue with that is, of our top five invaders, all of them demonstrate the ability to grow under closed canopy conditions. That means that even if they are being shaded out over time, they have the ability to spread into and persist in adjacent forest, potentially affecting forest regeneration," External link

sciencedaily Thursday, July 18, 2019 6:16:00 PM CEST

Melissa Daniels says: "If you need to preferentially spend money on invasive species management, it makes more sense to focus treatment in larger blowdown areas," "We also found that the most common invaders in the blowdowns were also the most common invaders in unaffected forest, suggesting the disturbance is just releasing what's already present in the system. Therefore, we recommend land managers focus their treatment on the most abundant invasives in their system" External link
