- ... Invasive aquatic plants typically reproduce vegetatively, but there have been conflicting hypotheses of invasive aquatic yellow flag iris dispersing primarily by seed versus rhizome fragmentation. We performed genetic analysis of 20 aquatic yellow flag iris populations across the Pacific Northwest, USA, with leaf tissue taken from plants between 2 and 5 m apart. We found 167 unique genotypes in 17 ...

- ... Genetic options for the control of invasive fishes were recently reviewed and synthesized at a 2010 international symposium, held in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, USA. The only option currently available “off-the-shelf” is triploidy, which can be used to produce sterile males for a release program analogous to those widely and successfully used for biological control of insect pests. However, the Troj ...
