About the Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants

The UF/IFAS Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants (CAIP) is a research, teaching, and extension unit located just north of the main Gainesville campus. UF/IFAS CAIP develops and disseminates environmentally sound management techniques for aquatic and natural area invasive plant species.

The Center supports agencies and organizations committed to managing aquatic and invasive plants while also informing the public about the impacts of invasive aquatic and natural area weedy plant species. UF/IFAS CAIP is a team of scientists and staff that are working on a variety of research projects that examine the impact of invasive plant species.
