With this application you can look up reference information and pictures of all the non-native, invasive species of weeds in Colorado. This application is a handy identification tool with the ability to look up weeds as well as how to mitigate them. You can also look up contact information for the people who manage the lists and help protect Colorado from these infestations.
This app is based on the U.S. Forest Service publication: A Field Guide for the Identification of Invasive Plants in Southern Forests. Invasions of nonnative plants into forests of the Southern United States continue to go unchecked and only partially unmonitored. Basic strategies for managing invasions on a specific site include maintaining forest vigor with minimal disturbance, constant surveillance and treatment of new unwanted arrivals, and finally, rehabilitation following eradication.
Plant-O-Matic generates a list of local plant species for any location in the Americas. Use high resolution photos, detailed text descriptions, and a variety of filters to identify and learn about plants.
