Building an EDRR Network in Montana Using Invaders Database (2010;
PDF | 2 MB)
Montana State University. Extension Service.
Six workshops were held across Montana in 2010.
Actively watching for new invaders and acting quickly
to remove them before they can establish and spread
is the foundation of an EDRR network. A well developed
EDRR program has the potentional to save the State
of Montana and private land owners a great deal
of time and money.

Species and Ecosystem Health.
Provides distribution data at the State and County level and point locations.
See the section Who's Using It? for mapping distribution in
various areas of the country. Includes:
Detection & Distribution
Mapping System (EDDMapS) - Alaska
Provides distribution data and abundance
of exotic and invasive plant species in Alaska.
Detection & Distribution
Mapping System (EDDMapS) - Mid-Atlantic Early
Detection Network (MAEDN)
MAEDN is a vast network of land managers, field
experts, citizen scientists, naturalists, gardeners
and others interested in documenting invasive
plant occurrences in the mid-Atlantic region
for the purposes of early detection, improved
management and better coordination. The region
includes Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New
York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia
and the District of Columbia.

Network of Invasive Plant Centers (NNIPC)
National Network of Invasive Plant Centers.
This new national network will coordinate existing regional information and expertise
to efficiently develop and deliver comprehensive national programs, and provide
a clearinghouse for continuously evolving information such as: Best Management
Practices, invasive species alerts, research findings, mapping efforts, and funding
and training opportunities.
