  • Develop invasive species spread prevention measures

  • Promote early detection and rapid response programs and methods

  • Promote consistent methods for inventorying, monitoring, and tracking invasive plants and encouraging cross-boundary data sharing

  • Bridge the gap between the research and land-management communities
