Invasive Species Information System
The capacity of managers to successfully control invasive species infestations is highly dependent on their ability to access pertinent and up-to-date information on ecology, biology, systematics, identification, and environmentally compatible management techniques. However, such a task is becoming increasingly more difficult because the existing knowledge base, in the form of technical reports, journal articles, oral presentations, videotapes, etc., is already sizable and increasing rapidly. An efficient mechanism is needed to access such diverse and important information. Toward this goal, the "Invasive Species Information System" was developed.

This system will allow users to view information on over 260 invasive species. By using the links on the side of the page, information on amphibians and reptiles, birds, fish, invertebrates, mammals and plants can be obtained. With each new topic or section, links are available on the left side of the page allowing access to more specific information on the chosen topic.

We have strived to include the most up-to-date and accurate information on the identification, biology and management of invasive species. If errors are identified in information content please contact Dr. Michael Grodowitz ( For technical questions regarding web access and function please contact Ms. Sherry Whitaker (
