  • Alien Plant Invaders of Natural Areas - Factsheets
    Plant Conservation Alliance, Alien Plant Working Group
  • Weed Alert Briefs
    Center for Urban Ecology, Exotic Plant Management Team (EPMT)
    Early in 2012 the EPMT steering committee developed a list of early detection plant targets. During 2012 EPMT staff worked with 35 volunteers to assemble key information on each of the 37 species identified by the steering committee. The alerts are meant to be something like a most wanted poster - put them on the wall so staff and visitors can report and remove these species.
