    Description

    In order to increase effective efforts to reduce the impacts of invasive alien plant speciesĀ· on our natural areas, we must overcome numerous barriers. Some of these are technical in nature, e.g., determining the most appropriate control method for a specific species in a particular ecosystem, or devising a better program to exclude new invasive plant species from our country. To build the infrastructure that will allow us to tackle such scientific problems, however, we have first to enliven the political will to address the very concept of invasive alien plant species damaging our eastern forests. We face numerous complex challenges in this underlying phase, as well.
