Invasive Species Projects

Since European colonization of the New World, non-native plants have been introduced to North America.  The past 25 years has seen an exponential growth of particularly problematic  aggressive exotic species which can out-compete native species and erode the integrity of native ecosystems.  While very few species are regulated as noxious weeds many more species of weeds, insects, mammals, and reptiles are today considered to be invasive and a threat to the ecological functions of intact natural systems.  Envirens provides inventories of invasive species and develops site sensitive prescriptions and management strategies for their control.
