Product Abstract

Concern about invasive species in Alaska is a growing concern, attracting attention from land managers, politicians and the public. Nearly half the new discoveries of invasive plants, animals, and insects in the state are reported by concerned individuals with a general interest in invasive species. The development of a mobile application for invasive plant identification and reporting will help enable the public to gather and share new invasive plant discoveries. This project will result in the development of a decision tool for identifying non-natives plant species, which will provide the foundation for the application. Project staff will also review user-submitted requests for identification assistance, review app-generated reports of invasives, and when necessary, alert appropriate land and resource decision makers and submit the information to the Alaska Exotic Plants Information Clearinghouse (AKEPIC).
