Dr Stefan Toepfer has contributed to WGRZ-TV’s The Outdoors programme on Invasive Species by sharing his expertise on ragweed – the invasive species that is a nightmare for millions of hay fever sufferers across Europe.

Dr Toepfer was invited to take part in the show for the Buffalo, New York-based, TV station after its producer saw a story on where Stefan is co-supervising a PhD student researching a biological control agent for ragweed.

You can see the piece, which turns the spotlight on invasive species ‘exported’ from America to Europe, on WGRZ-TV’s YouTube channel.
