Data Center Description
The INVADERS Database is a comprehensive database of exotic plant names and weed distribution records for five states in the northwestern United States. The spatial and temporal spread of weeds can be displayed using the historic distribution records in INVADERS. The INVADERS web site contains actual examples of how land management and weed regulatory agencies are using these data to improve their weed management programs. Noxious weed listings are provided for all US states and six southern tier Canadian provinces.
The INVADERS database structures and web-based query interface are a design that can be adapted to cover other regions and/or provide a national/continental scale system for early detection, tracking, and strategic management of invasive species.
