Yale Article Documents Correlation of Insect Decline and Non-native Plants
The displacement of native plants by non-native species affects ecological relationships with insects and by extension birds, resulting in a negative impact on populations. An article in Yale Environment 360, published at the Yale School of the Environment, presents recent research on these food web effects.
Homeowners Invasive Plant Primer
This new step-by-step guide from TN-IPC carefully walks homeowners through the process of identifying invasive plants in the residential landscape and helps them select the best solution for effective and lasting control. Paired with our Landscaping brochures, “Invasive Plant Primer for the Home Landscape: Identify, Control, Replant” outlines the best way to move from a lifeless yard choked with invasive plants to an ecologically functional landscape of diverse native plants supporting area wildlife. Printed copies of the guide are available thanks to the Tennessee Division of Forestry and a grant from the U.S. Forest Service. Local television show, Tennessee’s Wild Side, recently featured TN-IPC’s homeowners primer. View the segment here.
TN-IPC in Tennessee
We updated our name, logo, Web site, and plant list, but our mission remains the same: to promote public awareness of the serious threats non-native invasive plants pose to natural areas and provide solutions to manage those threats. TN-IPC is a chapter member of the Southeast Exotic Pest Plant Council and the national organization, National Association of Invasive Plant Councils.
