The Minnesota Invasive Terrestrial Plants & Pests Center (MITPPC) drives discoveries to prevent or reduce threats posed by priority invasive species.
World-Class ResearchWe encourage bold innovation by drawing from the diverse talents of the entire University of Minnesota system. We work across departments, campuses, field stations and research and outreach centers.
Community PartnershipsWe engage stakeholders – from individuals to industries – to identify the plants, pathogens and other pests most threatening to our state. We work to keep community members informed about the latest research and how to use it.
Practical SolutionsWe generate practical, science-based solutions to protect Minnesota's prairies, forests, wetlands and agricultural resources from harm by invasive species.
Investments in the FutureWe invest in finding ways to improve invasive species management in our state. Terrestrial invasive species has cost Minnesotans around $3 billion each year. We believe that innovative research can make a difference.
