Detailed overview:
Invasive Plant Atlas of the United States
Title: Invasive Plant Atlas of the United States
Title abbreviated: Invasive Plant Atlas
Creator: University of Georgia <Ga.> / Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health; National Park Service <Wash.>
Abstract: The purpose of the Atlas is to assist users with identification, early detection, prevention, and management of invasive plants. The focus is on non-native invasive plant species impacting natural areas, excluding agricultural and other heavily developed and managed lands. Four main components are species information, images, distribution maps, and early detection reporting procedures. The Invasive Plant Atlas is one step in the effort to combat invasive species, preserve our natural landscapes and the native plants, animals, and other creatures that inhabit them. The purposes of the Atlas are informational and educational. It is neither intended nor approved for use as a regulatory tool. Many of the species included are economically important horticultural plants that are problematic when they escape, establish and spread in natural areas. [Information of the supplier]
