Aquatic Invasives Early Detection and Response
Eurasian watennilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) is an aquatic invasive species which is native to Europe and Asia and has caused significant ecological and economic problems in the U.S. This plant has the ability to form dense, impenetrable beds that inhibit boating, swimming and fishing. Eurasian watennilfoil begins growing earlier than native plants, which can give it a competitive advantage. The dense surface mats fonned by the plant block sunlight and can displace native submergent plants. Eurasian watenni!foil has also been found to reduce water quality in lakes by several means.
