Items of Interest:

Pink Bollworm Nearly Eradicated in New Mexico? (Jan 2012)
New Mexico State University.
Pink bollworm is a devastating insect pest of cotton. Losses to PBW prior to the availability of Bt cotton and the initiation of the eradication program were estimated at $32 million per year (NCC 2001). An eradication program was established in south central New Mexico beginning in 2001. Pink bollworm has been successfully eradicated from that area. Now, data collected by NMSU entomologists in a joint program with Texas A & M University and USDA-APHIS indicate that populations of pink bollworm in eastern NM are, at least extremely low.

Inventory of Exotic Plants in Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument (PDF | 6.81 MB) (Jan 2011)
DOI. NPS. Natural Resource Program Center.
Within US national parks, exotic plant species modify landscapes and natural disturbance regimes (e.g., fire and flooding), reduce native plant and animal habitat, and increase trail maintenance needs. For national parks in the Southern Colorado Plateau Inventory and Monitoring Network (SCPN), the first step to controlling exotic plants is to complete exotic species inventories. This inventory recorded the exotic plants found in Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument. Information from the inventory can now be incorporated into weed management projects aiming to restore and preserve the Monument's natural and cultural landscapes.
