Some nice meaty posts about invasive species seen floating around the blogsphere this past week:
- Wayne over at the Niches blog posts about his efforts to eradicate Japanese stiltgrass (Microstegium vimineum) from his home in Georgia. This is his fourth year at it. He seems to be making some progress, but doesn't think he'll be done any time soon. Go Wayne! :-)
- bootstrap analysis blogged about the threat of carp entering the Great Lakes, and speaks out in support of the electric barrier that was once slated to be built in the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal.
- Missed this when it first came out, but bootstrap analysis also posted about non-native earthworms in the midwestern U.S., back in August.
