The Renz lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Agronomy Department and UW-Extension is pleased to present a series of videos for the identification of invasive plants. These videos can be found at the new UW-Extension Weed Science website:
Currently there are 13 videos with 6 to 10 more planned for release this coming field season. The current species covered are:
The UW-Extension Weed Science website also has a number of other resources. There are presentations, factsheets, links, and much more so when you go check out the videos don't forget to click around a bit.
Video recordings of the 2010 Invasive Plant Management Workshop held at the Chicago Botanic Garden in February are now available for viewing online! Click on the agenda item you would like to view.

In March of 2001 at the first Wisconsin Plants Out of Place Conference the Invasive Plants Association of Wisconsin was founded. A packed conference of 600 people shared their enthusiasm for starting IPAW and their knowledge about invasive plants. Ken Lonquist, a song-writer and folk-singer from Madison, was hired to close out the conference with a short concert. We asked Ken to write a song about invasive plants. The result was "Night of the Invasive Plants". Although Ken has been performing this song in subsequent concerts, he recently recorded it for the first time for a new album of Halloween songs. He shared it with us to pass along to other invasive plant people. Enjoy!
Take 2 minutes, if you can, to enjoy this Forest Pest Rap, written to advertise the new FAO Guide re forest pest prevention.
FAO's communications specialist Tullia Baldassarri did a great job on this video.
The FAO Guide provides easy to understand information on International Standards for Phytosanitary measures (ISPM's) and how forest management practices can play a role in minimizing pest prevalence and spread. It will soon be available in Arabic,Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. The English version is available now, and can be freely downloaded at:
