Students will locate some weed and native species found in Oregon and will understand that while databases are beneficial in studying plant populations, local on-the-ground information is commonly more up-to-date and that both are required to make large scale management decisions. Students will learn that the invasion of weeds commonly follows on the heels of a disturbance (natural or otherwise) and be introduced to some of the factors that impact the success of weeds in a particular ecosystem. Students will begin to relate the data to real-life situations and how they could be used to create management plans/strategies and/or alter existing management practices. This resource includes both a teaching guide and student worksheets.
