Abstract:
EBIPM is an important advancement in management of invasive plants. EBIPM puts land management decisions on a sound-footing based on ecological principles that cause plant community change. These principles, however, must be incorporated into the adaptive management cycle to truly make a change in how rangelands are managed. EBIPM should influence goals and objectives of the adaptive management plan, the treatment alternatives to be tested, and the variables that will be monitored. Along with sound experimental design, EBIPM in combination with adaptive management can greatly improve the chances of successfully managing invasive plant species.
