From Cal-IPC's Doug Johnson:
Cal-IPC is proposing additions to our California Invasive Plant Inventory and we are soliciting input during a 60-day comment period. I would appreciate your help in distributing this widely to your interested colleagues.
We are proposing to add:
- Ten plant species that are currently deemed invasive in California, based on completed assessments of impact and spread
- 87 species deemed to be a high-risk for becoming invasive in California. (We completed assessment for 200 species established outside cultivation in California, and these 87 are those that scored “high-risk.”)
You can view all information at http://cal-ipc.org/ip/inventory/update.php, including individual assessments, summary tables, the project team, and how to submit comments.
The 60-day public comment period runs from March 8 to May 8. The project team will post responses to input received, and for plant species whose categorization changes based on input received from this review period, the project team will post the revised assessments for a subsequent 30-day comment period.
Thanks for helping to distribute this notification.
Doug Johnson, Executive Director
California Invasive Plant Council
