Emerging Issues Surrounding Invasion and Control of Phragmites

(Phragmites australis) in Wisconsin’s Wetlands
Facilitated by Kelly Kearns, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources,

and Laura England, Wisconsin Wetlands Association

Thursday, January 27, 2005, 1:30 – 3:30 pm

Grand Council South

Phragmites australis, a relatively new invader of Wisconsin’s wetlands, is rapidly expanding its range in Wisconsin. Many wetland managers, restoration practitioners, and other wetland professionals in Wisconsin and the Great Lakes region have knowledge about phragmites invasion and control through on-the-ground experience. However, much of this knowledge has not been published, and thus far there has not been a means to make this collective phragmites expertise available such that wetland professionals can build on each others experience. Wisconsin Wetlands Association is making an effort to coordinate such a compilation through a working group and to make the results available online.
This working group session is open to all conference participants. We especially encourage you to participate if your work has involved phragmites, either directly or indirectly, or if you feel that your experience may provide insight into understanding phragmites invasion and control.
The agenda will include discussion of current knowledge and research needs on the following phragmites topics:

  1. Monitoring and mapping

  2. Early detection and rapid response

  3. Native versus non-native populations

  4. History of phragmites planting for shoreline erosion control

  5. Competition with native plants and other exotic invasives in wetlands

  6. Prevention- eliminating disturbance factors that facilitate phragmites

  7. Control techniques
