CABI Invasive Species Compendium. USDA and U.S. Fish and Wildlife are members of the CABI ISC consortium, helping make this resource freely available on the Web.

National Invasive Species Awareness Week, formerly National Invasive Weeds Awareness Week (NIWAW), is a series of annual events and activities supported by a variety of public and private organizations concerned about the threat of invasive species and the need to increase the understanding of invasive species management issues in the United States.

FICMNEW agencies work cooperatively with Reduce Risks from Invasive Species Coalition (RRISC), Bugwood, WSSA, and many other public and private organizations to help support NISAW in the national capital area (Washington, DC). In addition, FICMNEW agencies collaborate with local organizations and private landowners to conduct NISAW events at the state and county level.

 Guidelines for Coordinated Management of Noxious Weeds: Development of Weed Management Areas

These guidelines provide a unified effort in developing a weed management program, including public awareness; a prevention program; a common inventory, mapping, monitoring, and reporting procedure; and methods of integrated weed management. An overall management plan and specific action plans can be developed for logical units of land within specific Weed Management Areas (WMAs).

This book is a compilation of a series of pdf pages that is hosted by the Center for Invasive Species Management at Montana State University.
