Description:

Non-native invasive plants (NNIP) are rapidly spreading into natural ecosystems such as forests in the Upper Midwest. Using the strategic inventory data from the 2005-2006 U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service’s Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program and forest land cover data, we estimated the regional-invasibility patterns of NNIPs for major forest types by using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and geostatistical tools. We define the regional invasibility of a forest ecosystem as its susceptibility to the colonization and establishment of NNIPs, measured by a function of NNIP presence and cover percent. The invasibilityof four major forest types to multiflora rose (Rosa multiflora Thunb.) and garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata (M. Bieb.) Cavara & Grande) have been estimated and mapped and potential management applications discussed.

Keywords: multiflora rose, presence probability, invisibility, invasion stage, CART
