MSU Extension Publication Provides Useful Guidance on AIS
Michigan State University Extension has recently published a handy and useful guide that offers assistance to recreational boaters in identifying aquatic invasive plants. In addition, the guide provides important information on how to contribute findings to the Midwest Invasive Species Information Network (MISIN). MISIN is a multi‐state on‐line inter‐active resource designed to maintain current vital information regarding the potentially harmful terrestrial and aquatic invasive species that have been observed within the region.
With information regarding eleven aquatic invasive plants that currently pose a threat to or that may threaten Michigan’s aquatic ecosystems if they should become established in Michigan waters, the twenty eight page guide includes full color photographs and has been printed on water repellent paper.
MSU Extension publication E3189, A Michigan Boater’s Guide to Selected Invasive Aquatic Plants, is available through the MSU Extension Bookstore.
The cost of the guide is $10 per copy with reduced prices for bulk orders.
