  • Why are invasions like wildfires?Have distinct mechanisms for movementNeed fuel &amp; proper conditions for growthJump barriers by means of spot firesCan sit as “sleepers”Transform landscapes and ecosystemsTherefore, to manage the “fire” we should:Know where the fire isKnow the mechanisms that fuel its spreadIdentify spotfires &amp; extinguish before they spreadStop new blazes before they become conflagrationsPREVENTION IS THE KEY
  • 1st year form: 12” high rosetteLeaves: kidney-shaped, scallopedGarlicky odorS-shaped root
  • 2nd year form: elongated flower stalkLeaves: alternate on stem, toothed, triangularGarlicky odorS-shaped rootFour white petals per flower
  • Hairy sheaths at joints
  • Veg characteristics:Hairy leaf marginLong-lasting bright green colorHairy lower stemLeaves are 4-10 mmLeaves are very laxSheath open (other bromes have closed sheath)Ligule is 3-4 mm
  • Flower characteristicsSpikelets on very short stalks (Columbia brome has long stalks)Flower spikes droop

    1. 1. Clatsop County Early Detection Invasive Species Network<br />Invasive-Watch Training<br />August 19, 2009<br />
    2. 2. Agenda<br />Introduction of participants, partners (15 mins)<br />Intro to IS Management & EDRR (20 mins)<br />Focus species (25 mins)<br />Stretch break (15 mins)<br />Hands-on get to know the invaders (45 mins)<br />How to report, reporting demonstration (20 mins)<br />Evaluation, conclude (10 mins)<br />Lunch (1 hour)<br />Take a Hike! (1-4:00)<br />
    3. 3.
    4. 4. Invasive Species 101<br />What are invasive species?<br />How do they get into new environments?<br />Why care?<br />Management & your role in it.<br />
    5. 5. Invasive species means an alien species whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health. <br />
    6. 6. Definitions: Invasive Plants<br />“Weed”<br />Exotics<br />A plant growing where you do not want it.<br />(non-native)<br />Lots of beneficial species: Crops, pasture, forestry & ornamentals.<br />“Noxious”<br />A regulatory designation.<br />“Invasive”<br />Spreads outside of cultivation, and causes environmental& economic harm.<br />Natives<br />Co-evolution with other species, our natural heritage<br />

    8. 8.
    9. 9.
    10. 10. Biological invaders destroy habitats or out-compete native plants and animals.<br />Why should we care?<br />Invasive species costs Americans about $143 billion/year!<br />At least 30 new potential biological invaders enter the US every day…<br />
    11. 11.
    12. 12. What makes a plant invasive?<br />Lack normal environmental constraints<br />Fast growth and reproduction<br />Highly adaptable a wide range of conditions<br />Often can transform their environment<br />Often encouraged by disturbance<br />Dominance = less biodiversity<br />
    13. 13. How do we manage invasive plants?<br />Prevention<br />Quarantine before introduction<br />Monitoring & mapping<br />Chemical treatment (herbicides)<br />Biological controls (biocontrol)<br />Cultural treatment (hand pulling, cutting, etc.)<br />
    14. 14. The Wildfire Model<br />
