Strategic Management and Effective Control of Invasive Phragmites in Great Salt Lake Wetlands

With Christine Rohal

This talk will describe the results of recent research on prioritizing management and improving control of Phragmites along the Great Salt Lake. We will describe the spatial extent of Phragmites in GSL wetlands and the use of species distribution models to prioritize areas for control efforts. We will also discuss the effect of different management strategies for controlling both large and small patches of Phragmites.

Chad is the Assistant Manager at Ogden Bay Waterfowl Management Area and also began working on his Masters degree in spring of 2012. His research is looking at the effectiveness of treatments for controlling large stands of invasive Phragmites.
