Invasive Plant Listing: Taking it up a notch with a national standard




Nancy Loewenstein, Auburn University

Presenation Summary

For the past two years, the National Association of Invasive Plants Councils (NAIPC) has been part of a task group working on the development of an ASTM standard for invasive plant listing. The aim of the standard is to provide a mechanism by which entities that create lists of invasive plants based on environmental harm may ensure that they are conforming to a set of minimum criteria created to ensure the credibility of the lists and consistency across them. The webinar will cover how the project came into being, the process of developing an ASTM standard and the elements of the standard.
