Online resources for invasive species information

There is a lot of great information on invasive species ecology, identification, and control available on the internet.  This high volume of information may, at times, make it difficult to determine up-to-date, relevant sources.  I wanted to share with you a few of the sites that I use regularly when looking for information on invasive species. These sites are great places to start your search.

Species Identification

-University of Georgia’s Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health’s Invasive.org website

Distribution Information

-UGA’s Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System (EDDMapS)

Control Information

-Illinois Nature Preserve Commission’s Vegetation Management Guidelines http://dnr.state.il.us/inpc/management_guidelines.htm

- USDA Forest Service – Southern Research Station’s Management Guide for Invasive Plants in Southern Forests

-Midwest Invasive Plant Network’s Invasive Plant Control Database

Spread Prevention

 -Wisconsin Council on Forestry’s Invasive Species Best Management Practices
