Week of February 2, 2009


WeedUS is a database of information about plants that invade natural areas in the U.S. (including Hawaii). It is intended as an informational and educational tool and is compiled from a wide variety of sources including published and unpublished lists, reports, surveys, and personal observations from experts in the field. Sources include the National Park Service, other federal, state and local agencies, Exotic Pest Plant Councils, Invasive Species Councils and related organizations, The Nature Conservancy, and others.

This website is a collaborative project between the Plant Conservation Alliance's Alien Plant Working Group and the University of Georgia - Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health. The project will eventually expand to allow volunteers to provide distribution information on infestations of species in the database. Link
