Invasive Species Control

Exotic, invasive, and nuisance species are serious threats to fish and wildlife in Florida. Archie Carr Partnership staff control exotic, invasive, and nuisance species on the Archie Carr Refuge that threaten the survival of many species by displacing or killing individuals, destroying habitats, and disrupting ecological communities. In efforts to combat these noxious, invasive plants, chemical and mechanical control of Brazilian pepper, melaleuca, air potato, rosary pea, guinea grass, Chinese tallow tree, cogon grass, and Japanese climbing fern is conducted on the refuge.
