NOTE: DATE AND LOCATION CHANGE
Invasive earthworms from Europe change the structure of the soil by consuming the leaf litter (duff), leading to changes in availability of water and nutrients, in turn causing the plant community to change. These changes have wide-ranging cascade effects of interest to society, including impacts on forest productivity, climate change, conservation of native plants, human and crop health, and forest fires. New research on the recent Asian earthworm invasion will also be discussed.
