IFAS Assessment of the Status of Non-Native Plants in Florida's Natural Areas

Predictive Tool Response Forms in PDF Format

For species that have not escaped into Florida’s natural areas but which are either recent arrivals to the state or are known to cause problems in areas with similar habitats and climate to Florida the Status Assessment directs the use of a predictive tool. After rigorous testing in Florida, the Australian Weed Risk Assessment system (WRA) has been adapted for use in Florida to complete the assessment of such species.
