Giant hogweed, cheatgrass, Miconia, purple loosestrife, yellow starthistle, saltcedar, Lygodium, Arundo; these are some of the invasive plants that will be addressed as scientists and managers join forces for a conference on Invasive Plants in Natural and Managed Systems: Linking Science and Management (IPINAMS). The conference will be held November 3-8, 2003, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in conjunction with the Seventh International Conference on the Ecology and Management of Alien Plant Invasions (EMAPi7).
The conference will bring together ecologists, weed scientists, private and public land managers, agricultural scientists, policy makers, and others interested in invasive species issues. Featuring three and a half days of plenary sessions, symposia, workshops, contributed poster and oral presentations, and roundtable discussions, the meeting will also offer pre- and post-conference field trips.
The IPINAMS-EMAPI Conference is cosponsored by the Weed Science Society of America, the Ecological Society of America, and numerous other societies and federal agencies. A full searchable list of abstracts is available at: http://184.108.40.206/pweb/?SOCIETY=esawssa&YEAR=2003.
