How and why are species assessed?

The UF/IFAS Assessment of Non-native Plants in Florida’s Natural Areas uses literature-based assessment tools to evaluate the invasion risk of non-native species that occur in the state, new species proposed for introduction, and novel agricultural and horticultural selections, hybrids, and cultivars. Our overarching goal is to reduce non-native plant invasions in Florida and throughout the Southeast US for protection of natural and agricultural areas.

Species Experts — we need your help.

We are seeking expert input from land managers and scientists to improve our evaluation of invasion risk for non-native species that already occur around the state. Your input is what allows the UF/IFAS Assessment to provide reliable, informed recommendations for the use of non-native plant species in the state of Florida.

Please take a few moments to review the list of species that still need input and contribute your expertise where applicable.
