Abstract/Contents:"Invasive species gained national attention with the signing of an Executive Order, that created an Invasive Species Council (ISC). The ISC is to submit a comprehensive Invasive Species Management Plan by Aug., 2000. The ISC and the ISAC have very concise guiding principles related to the management plan: take action, pull together, be comprehensive, find balance, engage the public, work smart, and be adaptive. This activity coincides with the active development and implementation of invasive species programs and/or legislation (particularly for plant species) in many states and regions. Some of this has and will translate into possible impact for the turf industry. For example, some consider all non-native species as invasive and a draft list of invasive non-native species in Wisconsin included timothy, Kentucky bluegrass, and reed canarygrass. None are on the proposed prohibited plant list but reed canarygrass may be a restricted species. However, most people recognize the value of many introduced species and that they either are non-invasive or can be kept as such with reasonable management. If the turf industry monitors the development and implementation of national and state management plans, there should be few surprises and hopefully even a few opportunities to help prevent invasive surprises on the landscape."
