Description:

Weeds Gone Wild is a project of Plant Conservation Alliance (reviewed in the January 19, 2000 Scout Report for Science & Engineering-- http://scout.cs.wisc.edu/report/sci-eng/2000/se-000119.html#16}), a consortium of federal and non-federal agencies dedicated to protecting native plants. Targeting viewers ranging from the general public to researchers, this site provides information on "the serious threat and impacts of invasive alien (exotic, non-native) plants to the native flora, fauna, and natural ecosystems of the United States." To that end, the site includes a compiled national list of many invasive plants (Aquatics, Herbs, Vines, Shrubs and Trees); comprehensive background information on invasive species; illustrated fact sheets with plant descriptions, native range, distribution, and habitat in the US; management options and suggested alternative native plants; and other information. A collection of links of experts and organizations rounds out this well-conceived site.
