Control and Management of Invasive Species
The Invasive Species Program provides approaches to contain, reduce, and eliminate populations of invasive species and restore habitats and native species. As part of their strategic plan, they strive to:
- Research to develop and test approaches to control populations of invasive species. Emphasis is on genetic, molecular, biological, chemical, and ecological methods that reduce impacts of invasive species at landscape and regional scales.
- Research on adaptive management methods for invasive species that help restore ecosystem processes and populations of native species, especially those that are endemic or threatened.
