Riparian area invasive plant management along the Niobrara River, targeting yellow flag iris (Iris pseudacorus L.)
MetadataShow full item record
Yellow Flag Iris (YFI) (Iris pseudacorus L.) is an invasive exotic species that is causing substantial changes to the ecology of the Niobrara River and the adjacent riparian area habitat. Options for invasive plant management along the Niobrara River, like most riparian wetlands, are quite limited. Currently, herbicides offer the best opportunities for successful YFI management in riparian habitats such as those along the Niobrara River but irrigation diversion and livestock grazing are prevalent which impose further limitations on management options. In this study, we analyzed the efficacy of ...
