Nearly 200 scientists and invasive plant management stakeholders from industry associations, professional societies, government agencies and private organizations all over North America will gather in our Nation’s capital to raise awareness about the severe economic and environmental impacts caused by invasive plants during the 9th Annual National Invasive Weed Awareness Week, February 24 - 29.
The Weed Science Society of America announces the winners of the prestigious Weed Science Society of America Awards, which were presented to members who displayed excellence in research, education and extension outreach activities related to weed science. Nominees were judged by their peers on the weight of their scientific accomplishments and the notable contributions they have made in their areas of expertise. These top honors were awarded on the opening day of the organization’s 48th Annual Meeting, held February 4 - 7, 2008, in Chicago.
