Invasive Plants of the Upper Midwest: An illustrated guide to their identification and control, by Elizabeth J. CzarapataBooks
$30.00Add to cart
Czarapata, a Wild Ones member and founder of the Wind Lake Environmental Club, posthumously received the Wisconsin Council on Invasive Species 2005 Invader Crusader Award. This in-depth guide starts by explaining what invasive plants are, and why it’s important to control them. Index includes common names, and four-color closeups and long shots throughout the book assist in identification. The most effective techniques for control are discussed, and invasive plants of major concern are highlighted because of their ability to aggressively spread and cause both ecological and economic damage. Native plants which also sometimes need control are also discussed, not because these plants should be eliminated from the landscape, but to encourage native plant diversity which may not be achieved if the more aggressive natives have free reign.
