Carey Minteer is the Invasive Species Coordinator for the Bugwood Network at the University of Georgia. Previously, she worked at the University of Arkansas Herbarium, where she conducted field work and mapped several invasive plant species of the region. Her interests include invasive plant species, the biological control of these species, conservation, and restoring the ecosystem to its “natural” state. She believes that the native flora and fauna of a region should be protected and as a biologist she strives to do all she can to achieve this. Her current duties include classification of images and information into the Bugwood Image Database System (IDS), expanding the development and operation of the Georgia Invasive Species Task Force, overseeing components of the Georgia Cogongrass Cooperative Weed Management Area, development and training associated with the Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System (EDDMapS).
