By Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaUniversity of Georgia experts have opened a new center in Tifton, Ga., to limit the spread of invasive species and understand their impact on native plants. They hope to teach others how to do the same. The UGA Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health will pool the resources and expertise found in the university’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, said Dave Moorhead, a UGA professor of silviculture and the center’s co-director. “Our strengths will be creating educational materials, partnering with others on the university level and creating outreach programs,” he said. The center will be located on the UGA Tifton campus, he said, but its focus will include invasive and ecosystem health threats found around the Southeast, the country and even the world. Center co-director Keith Douce, a CAES entomologist, is in Europe teaching and learning about invasive species that could potentially cause problems here. “With global trade, now more than ever, the possibility of invasive species being introduced from any part of the world is high,” Moorhead said. An invasive species is one that is introduced either by accident or on purpose to an area where it hasn’t been in the past. At first, the species may go unnoticed, he said. But if a population is allowed to grow, it can out compete and dominate native species and cause major health problems for the ecosystem. Invasive species cause $100 million in damage annually in the U.S. Georgia has many unwanted guests like privet and kudzu, a notorious, rapidly spreading vine of Southern legend. But other unwanted guests are now starting to wear out their welcome, too. Honeysuckle, Japanese climbing fern and the vine Oriental bittersweet are stalking their way through Georgia forests. And cogongrass, an aggressive grass that can choke out native flora, has caused major problems in Florida and Mississippi. It now has a foothold in Georgia. The Midwest and western states have problems with invasive species, too. Getting land managers on the same page there to control invasive species is a bit easier because a lot of the land is publicly owned, Moorhead said. It’s different in the eastern U.S., where much of the land is privately owned, he said. “It’s more difficult to get a widespread program and get the word out in this area that invasives are starting to pose problems.” The center evolved from the Bugwood Network, a UGA Web-based system used to collect, promote and distribute educational materials in entomology, forestry and natural resources.
Orsted remains focused on U.S. offshore wind market FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Wall Street Journal:Danish energy company Ørsted A/S is considering a bid for several U.S. offshore-wind projects and already has the required funding in place, the company’s finance chief said.“There are a lot of auctions coming up in the U.S.,” said Ørsted Chief Financial Officer Marianne Wiinholt in an interview Friday with CFO Journal. “We feel we are well-positioned.”The U.S. would be key to Ørsted’s efforts to grow its global footprint. The company has installed about 25% of the installed offshore-wind capacity in the world, according to Marcus Bellander, an analyst at Nordea Bank AB.Earlier in August, Ørsted made its first major investment in the U.S. when it agreed to buy Lincoln Clean Energy LLC, a Chicago-based onshore wind and solar company, for $580 million.Bidding for capacity in the U.S. is next on the agenda. Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey each plan to select a bidder for offshore-wind projects in the coming quarters. Connecticut is set to announce the winner of a zero-carbon energy project in the next few months. The company hasn’t made a decision on which U.S. projects it will target. “We are looking into all of them,” Ms. Wiinholt said.The CFO’s comments come after Ørsted lost out in an auction in Massachusetts in May. It was a major setback in its quest to enter the U.S. market. “This was unexpected,” Mr. Bellander said.More ($): Denmark’s Ørsted plans to bid on new U.S. offshore-wind projects
