INVASIVE SPECIES CONTROL PROJECTS

1. Army Regional Invasive Species Investigation, Control, and Budgeting Project - This project will develop a regional strategy for budgeting, investigating, managing, and restoring areas with invasive species problems. A sample of 6 installations in the Northeast Region will be chosen as field test and validation sites. Utilizing existing data from Army, DoD, and state Departments of Natural Resources sources, a methodology to quantify installation invasive species issues will be developed and validated.

2. Brown Treesnake Interdiction and Prevention of Spread - This funding provides for brown treesnake interdiction in support of DoD operations on Guam.

3. Development of an Online Invasive Species Inventory System (ISIS) - This project will develop an online invasive species inventory system to provide users standardized monitoring protocols and allow the input of installation specific invasive species occurrences across all military facilities.

4. Pulling Together: A Public/Private Partnership for Invasive and Noxious Plant Management - This project provides for continuing support from the Legacy Resource Management Program for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation's (NFWF) Initiative entitled "Pulling Together- A Public/Private Partnership for Invasive and Noxious Plant Management."

5. Restoration of biodiversity in ecosystems dominated by invasive grasses - This continuation project will quantify the role of fire in maintaining and restoring native species through a large-scale experiment at Fort Huachuca.

6. Revision of the Noxious and Nuisance Plant Management Information System - PMIS - This computer-based system provides access to information on invasive plant biology/ecology, identification, and associated management strategies. This project includes adding information for 25 plant species including biology, ecology, problems, and operational management techniques. For the chemical control information, the most up-to-date labels for each chemical formulation will be obtained and subsequently summarized.
