the Center for Invasive Plant Management, the online "Invasive Plant
Resource Guide" is a reference for materials (fact sheets, handbooks,
booklets, etc.) that support invasive plant management and education. The
materials cover a wide array of topics ranging from weed management strategies
to natural resources to "working with people" skills. For each item, a
