Invasive Species

Agricultural Research Service Research Program - Invasive Species

  • AgResearch Magazine
    USDA. Agricultural Research Service.
    AgResearch (formerly called Agricultural Research) is an online digital monthly publication that highlights 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.

Invasive Species Working Group: Research Summary and Expertise Directory (Dec 2009)
USDA. FS. 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.

MetroInvasive - Research
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.
