Map of the Weeds

The Palm Beach Post has this story about efforts to manage invasive plants by tracking their location using hand-held GPS units. The project is a joint effort of several national organizations, and has locations across the country, including Florida's Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge. Researchers hope the digital information, by making mapping easier, will lead to quicker responses to known infestations.
