Rhoda B. deJonge, PhD Research Interests: Novel Associations - Invasive Species - Biological Control Insect/Plant Interactions - Urban Forestry
I am a Post-doctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Forestry. I study invasive plants common to southern Ontario and their novel associations with our native and naturalized insects. For the lay-person, this means I study the 'bugs' that eat our weeds. My work is a key part of Canada's biological control programs to reduce the spread of invasive plants effectively and efficiently, with the goal of restoring native plant communities and improve the health of our urban forests.
