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

Species Identification and Management

Members of MoIP have gathered resources, tools and guides that currently help identify, 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)

Pueraria montana var. lobata (kudzu)

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