Illinois Invasive Plant Publications

Posted by Nancy Kreith -

We would like to introduce the new Illinois Invasive Plant publications from the University of Illinois, Illinois Natural History Survey, USDA-APHIS-PPQ, and the River to River Cooperative Weed Management Area which debuted at the 150th Anniversary of the Illinois Natural History Survey. There are five posters in the collection. The large poster is 17" by 38" highlighting the four major habitats of Illinois (grassland, woodland, wetland, agriculture) and the top four invasive plants in those habitats. In addition, there are four smaller (8.5" by 11") posters corresponding to the four habitats on the large poster. Each small poster showcases 8 to 12 plants with a photo and distribution in Illinois on the front and information on identification and why the plant is considered invasive on the back.

These publications are available for free. If you would like copies of the publications, please contact the Natural History Survey at (217) 244-2161 with the quantity of each publication that you would like to receive. Additionally, please feel free to pass this message along to others that may be interested in these posters.
