Southeast Science Spotlight

A new online reporting tool can help control the spread of Cogongrass, a major threat to the Southeast's native plants and animals. Cogongrass is a perennial, colony-forming invasive grass that aggressively overtakes habitats by spreading underground roots and seeds from flowering seed heads. Reported sightings of Cogongrass' distinctive white seed heads can help resource managers respond to new infestations of this damaging invasive grass before the plant claims a stronghold in new territory.
