$170,000 to develop and validate predictive distribution models of high-priority invasive species under current and future climates. Research will focus on nine weeds on the Minnesota’s noxious weed list: Palmer amaranth, narrowleaf bittercress, oriental bittersweet, brown knapweed, black swallow-wort, Grecian foxglove, common teasel, Japanese hops, and Dalmatian toadflax. This work will improve detection and establish priorities for eradication and management. Principal investigator is David Moeller, professor of plant biology.
