FWC / IFAS Research Review 2013

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) Invasive Plant Management Section and the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants held its first biannual Research and Outreach Review Meeting since the economic downturn at the UF-IFAS Plant Science Research and Education Unit in Citra, Florida on March 12 and 13, 2013. The purpose of this meeting was to exchange current scientific research and outreach information on invasive plant management in Florida. The 1.5 day research and outreach review was attended by approximately one hundred participants and included university and government scientists, federal, state, and local government resource managers, and outreach professionals.

Below is a link to the PowerPoint talks (in PDF format) that were presented at the review.
