The risks associated with long-term, low-level glyphosate persistence in living plants are mostly unknown, and residues in plant tissue may have implications for ecosystem functions. The research explored here will?discuss the real-life timelines associated with glyphosate residues in plant tissues, and what we know so far about the plant population-level responses to glyphosate residues when then do persist in interior British Columbian forests. Dr. Wood will share some current research she is conducting on cumulative effects of glyphosate-based herbicides, and pose questions about what her results may mean for land management and species conservation.?
