Invasive Species Working Group

The Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) Invasive Species Working Group (ISWG) is a multidisciplinary team drawn from five major RMRS Programs across the Interior West. This cross-program group synthesizes RMRS research studies covering diverse disciplines to: (1) improve access to cohesive information addressing critical invasive species issues, (2) identify emerging research needs, and (3) promote the generation of innovative tools and technologies for managing invasive species. ISWG has developed a quarterly newsletter and this website to familiarize RMRS stakeholders and customers with RMRS invasive species research activities and provide a comprehensive and easily accessible source for research findings.
