Engel Presets on Adaptive Management of Phragmites at Wisconsin State-Wide invasive Species Meeting

April 12, 2019

Phragmites Adaptive Management Framework (PAMF) 

Dan Engel (GLSC, Chesterton, Indiana) attended a statewide meeting of Cooperative Invasive Species Management Associations in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on Wednesday, April 3, 2019. He presented on the Phragmites Adaptive Management Framework (PAMF) and invited anyone managing Phragmites to enroll with the program. Phragmites australis (also known as common reed) is a perennial wetland grass that has become one of the most invasive plants in North America, especially Great Lakes coastal wetlands. It is known to disrupt both ecosystems and ecosystem services. PAMF is a basin-wide program that uses a citizen science-style approach and adaptive management principles to reduce uncertainty about Phragmites management outcomes and refine best management practices. High participation rates allow PAMF to maximize collective learning and benefit the most people.
