UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MADISON: Implementing "Smart Prevention" of AIS in Wisconsin

Purpose

The Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System is sponsoring a project for UW Center for Limnology staff to analyze lakes statewide for their vulnerability to three aquatic invasive species, Eurasian watermilfoil, spiny waterflea, and zebra mussels. The results will be a very helpful guide to prioritize monitoring and management of these species. The project activities include: 1. Develop datasets and a data management framework, and 2. Assess lake vulnerability for the three species. Deliverables for this grant include 1. a master lakes data set, 2. lake-by-lake assessment of vulnerability for the three species, and significant sharing of the results. The DNR will be provided with both a paper copy and an electronic copy of the final report. The project results will be disseminated to the public by internet, media outreach, and presentations to colleagues, DNR, and local governments and organizations, as well as by participation in the Global Invasive Species Information Network.
