ABOUT THIS SITE
The purpose of this website is to provide easy access to invasive species related information and programs of the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS). The site is managed by the UF/IFAS Invasive Species Council.
Preventing and controlling invasive species are high priorities of the UF/IFAS Cooperative Extension Service because invasive species cause significant damage to Florida’s environment, economy, and quality of life. Florida must prevent new invasions while also utilizing the most up to date management tools available to control the invasive species already established.
There are so many UF/IFAS programs and research projects on invasive species that it can be difficult to know where to begin. By collecting links to this information in one place, we hope to provide a starting place for you.
