Invasipedia: A Shout Out

A shout out to Invasipedia, a website whose mission is to offer a receptacle of information for invasive  plants, animals and pathogens and how best to manage them.

Much like Wikipedia, its growth will depend on editorial contributions from all of you.  So far, the bulk of Invasipedia’s information has come from The Nature Conservancy’s Global Invasive Species Team. But it has a long way to go!

So come on! Check out Invasipedia and give ‘em a hand. It’s a great way to make a contribution!!

    Very useful information! I am currently trying to figure out how to get rid of Kudzu vine and will check this website to see if they have information to help me-thanks!

    Raquel-
    Thanks for chiming in. Kudzu vine is a bitch. Would guess there is already something on it but if not, ask for it! Pass the word on! Fran

    Wow, something to check out here.

    Darla-
    I couldn’t agree more. Pass the word on. The more the gardening world embraces this site, the more likely it is to broaden its information base….which is good for all of us. Fran

    What an excellent idea! I will have to explore it further, and tell others about it too. Thanks for letting us know. I hope it’s got goutweed on it!

    The Invasipedia has the best summary and control description I have seen yet for the dreaded Japanese Knotweed that we battle in our hayfield. With the Nature Conservancy’s involvement, it seems like a credible–and useful–resource.

    It seemed that way to me as well. This is where the gardening community can have some clout. Pass the word on!! Fran
