Since establishing the FEC lab in 2006, the research efforts of graduate and undergraduate students has resulted in many educational and research resources related to invasive species in the Pacific Northwest. One of these includes undergraduate research reports on Pacific Northwest invaders researched and written by students each year in my FSH 423 (Invasion Ecology) course. As information on new invasive species can be difficult to obtain, these reports represent  a substantial contribution to agencies and researchers in the Pacific Northwest working in invasive species management.
