Webinar: A framework for strategic response to invasive Phragmites australis in Minnesota
Author: U of M AIS Detectors
Invasive Phragmites (Phragmites australis subsp. australis) is a non-native wetland grass that can degrade fish and wildlife habitat, native plant diversity, and impede access to lakes and riverways. Over the past two years, researchers at the University of Minnesota have been investigating the distribution of invasive Phragmites in the state. The MNPhrag project has documented 389 populations statewide through targeted staff surveillance and reports by community members and agency staff. Invasive Phragmites is most common in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, Chisago and Wright counties, and around the city of Duluth, and most populations appear to be of manageable size. These findings suggest there is a window of opportunity to reverse invasive Phragmites spread in Minnesota by mobilizing a strategic, coordinated response across the landscape.
