Revised UF Publication on Controlling Invasive Exotic Plants in North Florida Forests
Controlling Invasive Exotic Plants in North Florida Forests (SSFOR19/FR133)
Invasive non-native organisms are one of the greatest threats to the natural ecosystems of the United States. Invasive plants reduce biodiversity, encroach on endangered and threatened species, and rob native species of habitat. This 8-page fact sheet describes many of the current methods used to manage some of the more common and troublesome invasive exotic plants in north Florida forests, such as tallow trees, privet, climbing fern, kudzu and cogongrass. Written by Chris Demers, Alan Long and Rick Williams, and published by the UF Department of School of Forest Resources and Conservation, and revised January 2012.
