West Virginia Project
Effects of Imidacloprid on Soil Macrofauna within Riparian Hemlock Forests
April 2016 - May 2021
- New River Gorge
This research is designed to determine the richness and diversity of soil and benthic microinvertebrates and salamander species associated with imidacloprid treatment and to assess the risk of imidacloprid treatments. Synthesis of this information could culminate in the reassessment of hemlock woolly adelgid treatment program based on the results of this project.
