Annual Management Unit Summary Code

June 2, 2020

The Phragmites Adaptive Management Framework (PAMF) is an adaptive management program created to improve the efficacy and efficiency of Phragmites management efforts throughout the Great Lakes region. Managers enroll Phragmites stands, report the management techniques they used, and monitor the invasion status of Phragmites on their site (management unit - MU). Through a systematic approach, PAMF engages Phragmites managers to develop best management practices and provide site-specific management guidance that is a product of the PAMF model and based on the results of past management efforts. This software was created to generate summaries of management progress in PAMF. The Annual Management Unit Summary (AMUS) documents provide MU specific summaries of the management actions applied, their cost, and the response of Phragmites to their implementation throughout the MU's enrollment in PAMF. These documents can be used by participants for administrative record-keeping or shared with funding agencies or other outside organizations to promote Phragmites management efforts.
