Biology and Climate Change (Jan 2011)
Weed Biology and Climate
a synthesis of what is known regarding the
probable impact of environmental change on
weed biology. Chapters look at impacts
of weed biology on agriculture, invasive species
that limit ecological diversity and weeds that
serve as health risks. In addition it looks
at current weed management strategies and how
they will be affected by global climate change.

The Federal Highway Administration in partnership
with the Environmental Protection Agency, and Natural Resources
Conservation Service, presents a sequel reference to the 1999 Roadside
Use of Native Plants. The new reference features a state-by-state analysis of noxious weed law for all land managers. It also offers expert essays on the issues common to the "war on weeds" waged by all federal, State, and local agencies across the country. The reference includes educational examples that have increased public awareness at various levels.
