Biological control of invasive water primroses
Exotic water primroses (Ludwigia spp.) are aggressive invaders in both aquatic and riparian ecosystems. The plants form dense mats over the water surface. These mats constrain navigation and interfere with recreational activities, irrigation, drainage,...
Arundo wasp, a biocontrol agent, is established and spreading in Delta watersheds
Arundo or giant reed (Arundo donax) is invasive in riparian areas in much of central and southern California, as well as other parts of the U.S. In the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, arundo grows on islands and along the edges of sloughs and canals. It is...
California Division of Boating & Waterways teams up with NASA to map invasive aquatic weeds
Through a partnership with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as a part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) Delta Regional Areawide Aquatic Weed Project (DRAAWP), NASA has developed...
DRAAWP participants are submitting papers to be included in a DRAAWP-themed issue of the Journal of Aquatic Plant Management, early 2020.
The next Aquatic Plant Management Society annual meeting will be July 19-22, 2020, in San Antonio, TX.
UC Davis Aquatic Weed School will return September 2-3, 2020.
