Partners of the Invasive Species Information Node

The Invasive Species Information Node's many partners are working to create data and tools relating to invasive species studies across the country including Web-enabled identification tools for key invasive species and how to distinguish them from their look-alikes, and detailed species profiles made available through NBII regional nodes and the Global Invasive Species Database. The node's growing list of partners includes NBII regional and thematic nodes, U.S. Geological Survey programs, science centers, and field offices, and national and international organizations.

BLM and the NBII California Information Node (CAIN) are collaborating on assessments for rivers and riparian areas. A tool developed by the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service to allow landowners and biologists to assess impacts of management practices on biodiversity and hydrological function will be available through CAIN. BLM also was a co-founder and major supporter of the Natural Resources Project Inventory, an online catalog of environmental management and environmental restoration projects in California, and of CalWeed, a catalog of invasive species management efforts. Both are being re-written as NBII Web services. BLM also sponsored a dataset on native and non-native plant species diversity, soils, and crusts in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Utah, that is being analyzed by the data consortium of NBII''s Invasive Species Information Node. BLM is providing data from their Density Management Studies (DMS) to the Pacific Northwest Information Node. The DMS started in 1994 as part of the Northwest Forest Plan implementation to determine whether innovative silvicultural treatments can accelerate development of late-successional characteristics in managed forests.
