Invasive Species Focus on Nutria

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Wetlands Research Center scientist Jacoby Carter presented “The Natural History of an Urban Nutria (Myocastor coypus) Population Between 2005 - 2008 and the Implications for Management and Control” to the NBII Invasive Species Working Group (ISWG) during their monthly conference call on February 25, 2010. The ISWG membership includes over 100 representatives from private, non-profit, educational, state and federal government, and non-governmental organizations from across the United States. The Central Southwest & Gulf Coast Information Node’s (CSWGCIN) Invasive Species Spotlight section includes a page on Nutria that highlights Dr. Carter’s research.
