banner of the Federal Interagency Committee for the Management of Noxious and Exotic Weeds

The Federal Interagency Committee for the Management of Noxious and Exotic weeds (FICMNEW) represents an unprecedented formal partnership between 18 federal agencies with direct invasive plant management and regulatory responsibilities spanning across the United States and territories. FICMNEW was established through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by agency leadership in 1994 and 1997. It is currently co-chaired by USDA-NIFA (Bob NowierskiDOE (Eric Bradley) and DOI-BLM (Gina RamosSeth Flanigan).

During bi-monthly quarterly open meetings, FICMNEW members interact on important national and regional invasive plant issues and share information with various public and private organizations participating with the federal sector to address invasive plant issues.

...

FICMNEW continues to bridge the gap between federal agency invasive plant management and science activities and has been a driving force behind the national emphasis against the broader invasive species threat.

Version 2.0 of a comprehensive list of U.S. non-native species and how it may relate to FICMNEW

The USGS' recent update of its list of non-native species established in Alaska, Hawaii, and the conterminous United States is a compilation and analysis of authoritative assertions of the nonindigenous status of all taxa in our nation.
Is a subset of this list relevant to weed managers and decision makers? Following the presentation and any resulting questions, join us in a conversation to discuss possible parameters of a potential FICMNEW weed list.
