The effects of emerald ash borer (EAB) (Agrilus planipennis Fairmare) on forest ecosystems are being studied through a collaborative research program involving U.S. Forest Service Northern Research Station (Research Work Unit 2) and Ohio State University. In more than 250 monitoring plots in forests in Ohio and Michigan representing a gradient of EAB infestation duration, we are monitoring the decline and mortality of thousands of ash (Fraxinus spp.) trees, the responses of both native and invasive plant species, changes in species composition and forest structure, and effects on other organisms and ecosystem processes.
