Missouri Invasive Plant Task Force (MoIP) - to identify and control the invasive plant species that severely impact native biodiversity

Species-Specific Resources

Members of MoIP have gathered resources, tools and guides that currently help identify, understand, assess and manage invasive and exotic plant species.

Species-specific portals

These agencies and organizations host their own species-specific management guides:

Agrostis stolonifera (creeping bentgrass)

Academic articles:

Alliaria petiolata (garlic mustard)

Euonymus fortunei `Coloratus’ (purpleleaf wintercreeper)

Lonicera maacki and Lonicera X bella (exotic honeysuckles)

  • Kudzu Fact Sheet: 6-pager on the species from the Forest Invasive Plants Resource Center
