A Field Guide for the Identification of Invasive Plants in Southern Forests

James H. Miller, Erwin B. Chambliss, Nancy J. Loewenstein

Invasions of nonnative plants into southern forests continue to go largely unchecked and only partially monitored.

Accurate identification of nonnative invasive plants is critical for recognition of new entries and positive control of existing infestations, but many invasive species closely resemble native species and most have been commercially bred to yield varieties with varying traits. This book provides the information and images necessary to safeguard valuable native plants and to target their invasive “look-a-likes.”
