Cameron Douglass is the current Thomas McKenna Meredith ’48 postdoctoral fellow in the Environmental Sciences program. His expertise is in applied plant and community ecology; with a particular research focus on the ecological and environmental impacts of managing weedy and invasive plant species. His graduate work began at Cornell University where he studied invasive vines in New York, and took him to Colorado State University where he researched the implications of integrated management of the widely invasive tree species tamarisk (saltcedar). At Trinity he will continue this area of research in riparian corridors near Hartford, and in natural areas along the Connecticut coast. Current projects include studying the impacts and outcomes of managing assemblages of invasive, woody species in successionally transitional plant communities, and modeling herbicide dissipation and non-target effects in stands of invasive common reed (Phragmites australis). He is also interested in applications of remote sensing technology to quantify the distribution and extent of invasive plants, and especially as a means of evaluating long-term outcomes of management efforts. Cameron has taught many plant and environmental science courses, and strives to build his student's critical thinking and communication skills while challenging them with inter-disciplinary and experiential educational opportunities.
