The Invasive Plant Advisory Committee of the Indiana Invasive Species Council has developed an invasive plant list for Indiana and it is now available at http://www.entm.purdue.edu/IISC/invasiveplants.php. An assessment document was created for each species, evaluating the invasive threat it poses for Indiana. Those assessment documents can be accessed at the same web link as above, simply by clicking on the plant name.
This is just a start – 95 species are on the list, but more remain to be assessed, and they will be added as time allows.
The IISC approved this list at their Sept. 26 meeting, and agreed to ask the DNR regulator of invasive plants to explore removing those species that ranked as highly invasive from trade in Indiana.
