Nonindigenous Plants' Database, Army Lands Inventory
Entry ID: dodusacorpsaec_d_nips


Summary
Abstract: The Army Enviromental Center (AEC) gave the Waterways Experiment
Station (WES) the task of developing a database covering noxious and nuisance
plants because there is no central database on nonindigenous plant species on
Army installations. There are a few databases that exist that identify the
composition of vegetation at some military installations; however, these
systems were developed to account for threatened and endangered species or for
management of lands that have been disturbed during training operations.

Purpose: To develop a central database on nonindigenous plant species on army
installations.

Methodology Description: A questionnaire was developed to solicity information
on the problem vegetation and the control methods utilized. Personnel at army
installations nationwide were asked to complete the questionnaire.

Supplementary Information: Information for this metadata was taken from the
report - U.S. Geological Survey, Nonindigenous Plants Proceedings of the
Workshop on Databases, Gainesville, Florida, September 24-25, 1997.
