Hybrid Distribution & Ecology
Recognizing the need for a better scientific understanding of where hybrid watermilfoils (Eurasian and northern watermilfoil hybrids or Myriophyllum spicatum x sibiricum) are located on the landscape, DNR Science Services have conducted and coordinated extensive DNA genetic analysis on milfoil populations across the state. Existence of hybrid watermilfoils are a recently discovered phenomenon and are currently poorly understood. Wisconsin is an emerging leader in better understanding hybrid milfoil distribution, ecology and management.
