A Real Cliffhanger  

It's time for another "Your Punny Title Here!" contest. Come up with the best, punniest title for this post and you will win a 2007 Invasive Species Weblog Wall Calendar. One entry per person, leave a non-anonymous comment below...

Contest: Your Punny Title Here! IV - Update 3/12/2007: Congratulations to tom at Curly Tales of War Pigs for his winning entry, now installing at the title of this post. Unfortunately, tom must not want his super-snazzy, if now slightly outdated ISW calendar, because he has ignored my efforts to contact him. So the first person to leave a comment or to email me saying that s/he wants the calendar will get it, them's the rules.


The Honolulu Advertiser says that volunteers in Oahu, Hawaii are finally reporting some success at managing the invasive plant known as bush beardgrass (Schizachyrium condensatum). Unfortunately, the grass is a wily invader, producing proliferous amounts of seed and often spreading onto steep cliffs that are difficult for the volunteers to climb. Native to tropical America, bush beardgrass was first discovered on Oahu back 2002, and can also be found on Kauai and the main island of Hawaii. The Oahu volunteers are hopeful but realistic about the prospects of eradicating it.
