Invasive Yellow Tuft in Southern Oregon

Title: Utilizing habitat suitability models to inform management strategies for the eradication of Alyssum murale and Alyssum corsicum in Josephine County, Oregon


Abstract:
  Alyssum corsicum and Alyssum murale are two invasive terrestrial plants that are threatening the habitat of endemic and endangered species in Josephine County, OR. This project will utilize the habitat suitability model MaxEnt to identify locations where these species might spread in Southern Oregon and Northern California. The model results will inform surveillance efforts and management strategies for the US Forest Service, Oregon Department of Agriculture, and other stakeholders working towards eradication of these species.
