    • 1. Invasive Plant SpeciesNevin DawsonUniversity of Maryland ExtensionSylvan KaufmanSylvan Green Earth
    • 2. Native v. Exotic Native Thousands of years of co-evolution with othernative plants and animals Exotic Introduced from other parts of the country orworld Exists outside of the system that it evolved in Not necessarily invasive (1,000 of 4,000)
    • 3. Invasive v. Non-Invasive As per Executive Order 13112 an"invasive species" is defined as a speciesthat is: 1) non-native (or alien) to the ecosystemunder consideration and 2) whose introduction causes or is likely tocause economic or environmental harm orharm to human health.Noxious Weeds: defined by MD Weed Control Law;required to be removed: johnsongrass, shattercane,and thistles
    • 4. Primer on Invasives How they get started Imported in packing material or ballast water Intentionally introduced: “seemed like a goodidea at the time” Erosion control Ornamental
    • 5. Primer on Invasives Why they are successful Easy to grow Quick solution to a problem Easy landscaping Lack of knowledge of consequences Similar to Superman No natural enemies Easy to compete in the local climate/site
    • 6. Primer on Invasives Their impact Damages and losses of more than $138 billionper year nationally* Crowd out native species Reduce food and cover sources for nativespecies Reduce biodiversity*Pimentel, D.; R. Zuniga and D., Morrison (2005). "Update on theenvironmental and economic costs associated with alien-invasive speciesin the United States.". Ecological Economics 52: 273–288.doi:10.1016/j.ecolecon.2004.10.002

    • 22. Control Measures Chemical Labor varies Higher cost possible Moderate access required Possible collateraldamage
    • 23. Effective Herbicide TreatmentsSuccess with herbicides requires• the most effective herbicide,• applied using the correct method, and• applied during the best time period.
    • 24. Herbicide Effectiveness Broad spectrum, non-selective or narrowspectrum, selective- e.g. glyphosate vs. clopyralid Soil activity- e.g. glyphosate vs. imazapyr Air temperature- above 55 F and below 80 F Plant phenology- Evergreen vs. deciduous
    • 25. Method and Timing of Application Foliar spray Wiping Hack-and-squirt orinjection (late winter,summer, not in spring) Cut stump (late winterand summer) Basal bark treatment(late winter, earlyspring)

    • 32. Basic Biology Damage type Defoliation Boring and Girdling Sucking Galling
    • 33. Basic BiologyDefoliation Chewing mouthparts Mandibles tear offpieces of leaves Results in defoliation Plant loses ability tophotosynthesizeMandible
    • 34. Gypsy Moth (Lymantria dispar) Defoliates Larvae eats leaves in spring Over 732,000 acres in eastern US in 2005 19,279 acres defoliated in Maryland in 2008 Slows growth Trees become more sensitive to otherfactors Can be fatal if occurs two years in a row,or subjected to additional factors Prefer oak, but will feed on otherhardwoods

    • 66. Sudden Oak Death (Phytophthera remorum) White oaks probably not susceptible Red oaks, rhododendron, blueberry,poison ivy, honeysuckle, and viburnumsmay all be susceptible Bark infection Large lesions Secondary infestation by ambrosia beetles,bark beetles, sapwood rotting fungus Leaf infection Brown to grey lesions anywhere in vascularsystem
