Transcript of "A spatial model of emerald ash borer spread"

  1. 1. A Spatial Model ofEmerald Ash BorerSpread in New YorkStateHerb SusmannIntroduction to GIS12/9/12
  2. 2. Introduction• Invasive species• Highly destructive• Spread by insect flight, human activities• Less than 1% of New York forests infested• 700 million trees at risk
