Invasive Species Science in Texas

Science Center Objects

The USGS Texas Water Science Center (TXWSC) has studies looking at the occurrence and impact of invasive species in Texas. Visit the links below for more information on our data and science.

 

INVASIVE SPECIES SCIENCE CAPABILITIES

TXWSC has expertise in invasive species science applications, including, but not limited to: 

  • Evaluating changes to water budgets from invasive species management
  • Monitoring water-quality changes from invasive species removal and containment
  • Collecting and analyzing water samples for invasive species
  • Monitoring invasive species populations and growth
  • Analyzing occurrence, distribution, and water-quality data to enhance understanding of invasive species ecology and potential range
