Aquatic Bioinvasions Research and Policy Institute - People
The Institute is jointly administered by Dr. Gregory Ruiz, director of SERC's Marine Invasions Research
Lab, and Dr. Mark Sytsma, director of PSU's Center for Lakes and Reservoirs. One of the primary goals behind the establishment of the ABRPI was to develop a strong collaborative link between the freshwater and marine expertise offered by both labs and to take advantage of facilities on the east and west coasts of the US. The Institute therefore combines the respective strengths of PSU and SERC in aquatic systems, and seeks to develop novel approaches to research, management and policy on biological invasions from the Atlantic to the Pacific coasts.
