Abstract/Contents:"Mother nature is never static and this is certainly the case for plants that move in one way or another to new locations. Some arrivals are by design but many are unannounced. The terms used to describe such species are "invasive exotics" and "invasive plant species." We often call them noxious weeds. At both the national and state levels, concern is growing about non-native species that threaten the stability of native plant communities and aquatic habitats and the productivity of fields, ranges and forests. The issue was brought front and center in early 1999 when President Clinton signed an Executive Order that created a National Invasive Species Council with the charge to address any and all issues concerning invasive species and to develop a national invasive species management plan. Key goals and words in the Order are coordination, planning, ecosystem-based, recommendations for international cooperation, maintenance of native species, monitoring impacts from invasive species and establishment of a coordinated and up-to-date information-sharing system. Once the Council and its advisory board are "up and running," we fully expect that it will not only be visible but more importantly, productive. This symposium was designed to address the invasive plant situation at various geographical levels and from several administrative/political perspectives. The presenters will give pertinent examples of successes and failures and we will discuss future needs regarding invasive weed prevention, containment and management."
