Our work has substantially advanced our knowledge of native and invasive forest insect ecology, impacts and management. Recent research on emerald ash borer (EAB), in particular, has contributed to understanding the population dynamics, economic and ecological impacts, and host preference of this invader. Other studies on management strategies and control options have substantially improved the outlook for landscape and urban ash trees. Results from our EAB projects have contributed to federal, state and municipal policies and decisions across much of the US, as well as Canada and Europe.
