Animals and pathogens reported

Animal Pest reports were compiled from survey responses, and are available for all the taxa below. The weed survey did not emphasize animal pests, so these reports only list the pests, their threats, and various comments on prevention or control methods. Contact addresses are included.

Disclaimer: Please note that this list should not be interpreted as an inclusive list of all wildland weeds. It is merely a list of those plants which were reported as weeds by a land manager of The Nature Conservancy. Most of these are non-native species, some are native that are invading because of other management practices (i.e. fire suppression). For more information about the species listed on our web site, refer to our important disclaimer page.
