Carried over in cargo from China, invasive species such as Chinese mitten crabs, Asian green crabs and gypsy moths, threaten the Northwest’s ecosystems. And China has problems with invaders like spartina and water hyacinth. Dr. Sam Chan from Oregon State University leads his team to Beijing, Shanghai and Oregon’s sister province, Fujian, looking for global solutions to this growing problem.
