Location: Exotic and Invasive Weeds Research
Project Number: 5325-22000-024-04
Start Date: Sep 14, 2011
End Date: Aug 31, 2016
A combination of field sampling, laboratory assessment and experimental studies will be used to measure and assess the changes found in Western US stream where Eurasian Watermilfoil has invaded. Qualitative and quantitative models will be developed to compare actual sites of invasion with areas through to be high at risk for potential invasion. Cold water springfed streams will be the primary focus of study as they best represent Alaskan waters where Eurasian Watermilfoil is rated to be the State's largest exotic weed threat.
