Weeds of Mass Destruction: Untamed Science Video
This Week: Weeds of Mass Destruction
Now that the weather has turned warmer and the days are getting longer, plants are starting to grow. The problem for us is that invasive plants often have a competitive edge over native plants. They’re growing out of control! Invasive plants like kudzu are overtaking the terrestrial environment while others like hydrila, water hyacinth, and giant salvinia threaten aquatic environments.
What can be done?
In this video, Rob who has spent years documenting invasives, gives us a look at a few of the worst and explains the importance of really knowing your species so that you too can help fight these invaders.
