Guidance and funding provided by Nancy Berlin (Region 9), several Region 9 botanists plus Don Dagnan and Noel Schneeberger (NA State and Private Forestry)
Purpose of This Field Guide:
There are many field guides on invasive plants and their identification.
The purpose of this field guide is to give a scientific synthesis of what is known about the behavior of such species in managed, disturbed, and pristine forested systems in addition to key information for accurate identification - for prioritizing research questions and choosing the best control strategies.
The most successful control methods are most often site-specific; over-generalizing control methods might lead to poor management and frustrating outcomes.
This guide has 15 species that are potential invaders of forests/woodlands.
Such invaders pose a threat by invading forests of various ages - from a recently harvested forest or woodland to an old-growth forest.
Herbs: Garlic mustard, Giant hogweed, Japanese knotweed, Japanese stiltgrass
Vines: Japanese honeysuckle, Kudzu vine, Mile-a-minute weed, Oriental bittersweet
Shrubs: Amur honeysuckle/bush honeysuckle, Autumn olive, Common buckthorn, Japanese barberry, Multiflora rose
Trees: Norway maple, Tree of heaven
Goals:
Goal 1 is to provide such information, using mostly peer-reviewed scientific publications and other primary sources.
As research/information about each species improve and increase in volume, it is likely that some of the research synthesis will need to be organized for each species in a separate reference book that will accompany this guide in the future.
Goal 2 is to make this guide accessible to a variety of people like private landowners and, managers, researchers.
We do this by providing simple, cursory descriptions that can then be read about in more detail (if desired) using the corresponding citations.
Goal 3 is emphasize the dynamic nature of invasions and science.
Species will be added/updated on an annual basis.
New species will be provided on an individual basis rather than by printing new field guides.
Goal 4 is to provide a useful, true-to-form field guide for use in field situations.
The guide is small, weatherproof and have removable pages - allowing one to easily add/order new pages to their guidebook
A Collaborative Effort:
The USDA Forest Service recognizes invasive plant species are a serious threat to public/private forests and needs include successful progress in prevention, control, research, and restoration involving invasives.
