Controlling the noxious Russian knapweed in North America

Although native to Asia, Russian knapweed was accidentally introduced to North America over 100 years ago and is now causing untold problems across many states. Some decades ago, a nematode species was used in an effort to control the plant but it proved ineffective. Funded by a US and Canadian consortium CABI has been tasked with researching and... >>

Tackling common tansy in North America

Common tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) is a Eurasian plant species that has become invasive in North America. Due to CABI’s expertise in classical biological control we have been tasked with identifying specialist natural enemies from Eurasia that can be introduced into North America as biological control agents for common tansy. >>

Stemming the spread of Russian olive

Russian olive (Elaeagnus angustifolia) is a significant invasive weed in North America. It is especially a problem in western parts of USA where it affects many types of natural habitats; altering the ecosystem and its functions. As experts in classical biological weed control, CABI scientists have been asked to look for a potential agent to slow... >>

An old problem revisited: biological control of toadflaxes

Native to Europe, toadflaxes were introduced to the USA and Canada over 100 years ago as ornamental plants. They now occur over much of temperate North America and are declared noxious in eight US states. CABI is part of an effort to identify specific natural enemies that can be introduced into North America as biological control agents to reduce... >>

Controlling swallow-worts the sustainable way

Swallow-worts (Vincetoxicum nigrum and V. rossicum) are Eurasian plants that have become invasive in North America. The overall goal of the project is to identify specific natural enemies that can be introduced to North America as biological control agents for swallow-worts. >>

Invasive species data

Invasive species are causing species extinction. We are trying to address this problem by providing sound scientific information that will be used by endangered species managers to improve their efforts to recover listed and candidate species affected by invasive species. The information will also be used by invasive species managers to control... >>
