Pennsylvania iMapInvasives Interactive Website Now Available

A new invasive species reporting and data management tool is now available.  Called PA iMapInvasives, the site was developed through a partnership between The Nature Conservancy, NatureServe, the New York Natural Heritage Program and the Florida Natural Areas Inventory.

The primary focus for iMapInvasives is to track invasive species locations and distributions through the collection of observation, assessment, survey, and treatment information.

Tools in iMapInvasives can be used by citizen scientists, landowners, natural resource managers, and others who are working to prevent, control, or manage invasive species.

The project works with groups, institutions, and state government to gather data on aquatic and terrestrial invasive species, prioritize invasive species control, and assist in the restoration of natural habitats.

Project information is used to analyze data gaps and prioritize survey efforts, create emerging invasive species watch lists, and publicize invasive species threats.
