Annotated Bibliography

This annotated bibliography contains references on control of exotic plant species that occur in the Great Plains. You may search on either the species of interest or on the type of control measure. Complete citations are provided, as well as summaries describing the control technique and whether it was successful. These summaries are not meant to give detailed instructions; readers are encouraged to obtain the original article and talk with the investigators before attempting the control measure.

This bibliography is only a beginning. If you have attempted to control invasive exotic plants and would like to share your experience with others, please contact us via email at Be sure to include your email or other address, so questions regarding your methods can be directed to you. We will update this bibliography regularly with your contributions. Failures are as instructive as successes, and can save others from repeating methods that don't work. Thanks for your participation!
