Agricultural Research Service Research Program - Invasive Species
- AgResearch Magazine
USDA. Agricultural Research Service.
AgResearch (formerly called Agricultural Research) is now an online digital monthly publication that will highlight short features on the scientific research discoveries occurring at all of ARS' research laboratories across the Nation and abroad. AgResearch launched in April 2015 and replaces the print edition of the agency’s Agricultural Research magazine, which debuted in 1953 and published its last printed issue in 2013. The new online design is geared toward enhancing the digital/mobile user's experience and offers additional resources such as project information, publications, and other valuable background information for readers interested in delving more deeply into the science.

Rocky Mountain Research Station.
Rocky Mountain Research Station personnel have scientific expertise in widely
ranging disciplines and conduct multidisciplinary research on invasive species
issues with emphasis in terrestrial and aquatic habitats throughout the Interior
West, Great Plains, and related areas. RMRS invasive species research covers
an array of diverse ecological and environmental gradients, from southwestern
deserts to northern temperate rain forests and from low-elevation plains and
basins to alpine summits.
Collaborative project between Federal Agencies and Universities researchers.
Provides a perspective that considers urban areas as hubs of human-mediated
invasions in natural and managed ecosystems and provides resources to enhance
our understanding of the role of international trade in the dissemination of
invasive species. Contains maps of hot spots for human-mediated invasions where
early detection strategies could be implemented.

Report from Invasive Species Work
National Agricultural Research, Extension, Education,
and Economics Advisory Board (NAREEEAB).
At the Nov 2008 general meeting of the National Agricultural Research, Extension,
Education and Economics Advisory Board (the Board), a focus session was held
on the subject of Invasive Species. During this session, REE Mission
Area staff as well as Land Grant University and stakeholder experts updated the
Board with respect to current major research needs and other issues associated
with invasive species management and control. From these presentations and the
discussion that followed this focus session, the Board has summarized its observations
and prepared comments for the USDA to

Environmental Protection Agency.
Research grants totaling more than $3.5 million have been awarded to seven universities
and one nonprofit agency to study invasive species in the United States.
