Strategic Management and Effective Control of Invasive Phragmites in Great Salt Lake Wetlands
With Chad Cranney
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.
Christine Rohal is the recipient of the 2014 Doyle W. Stephens Scholarship.
