Invasive Plant Inventory and Early Detection Prioritization Tool for Stewart B. McKinney NWR

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

In 2010-2013, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) partnered with Utah State University to conduct invasive plant prioritization workshops and inventories on selected National Wildlife Refuges across the United States. The purpose of these workshops and subsequent inventories was to inform and improve the process of planning and implementing invasive plant inventories or early detection. These workshops highlighted the need for an objective, transparent and documented process for deciding which invasive plant species should be a focus of inventory or early detection (and ultimately management) and where. A result of this partnership is the Invasive Plant Inventory and Early Detection Prioritization Tool (IPIEDT) and associated user's guide. The tool is a Microsoft Access database (2010 or later) that utilizes site-specific knowledge and harnesses existing invasive plant information (invasive species risk rankings) to identify priority species and areas for inventory or early detection. The tool produces a ranked list of areas and invasive plant species to consider for inventory or early detection. Once the location and abundance of priority invasive plants are understood, this information can be used to decide what specific management strategies should be employed and where. Interior 1 Regional and Refuge staff used the database developed by Utah State and the Pacific Southwest Region to prioritize invasives species at Stewart B. McKinney. The attached products are the result of that prioritization.
