APMS Annual Meeting Focuses on New Developments in the Management of Invasive Aquatic Plants

Today the Weed Science Society of America (WSSA) announced it will be participating in the 57th Annual Meeting of the Aquatic Plant Management Society (APMS), scheduled for July 16-19 in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Florida is recognized as a leader in aquatic plant management activities, and this year’s conference is expected to be one of the best-attended events in APMS history.

WSSA’s Science Policy Director Lee Van Wychen, Ph.D., will provide an update on federal regulatory policies and research funding affecting aquatic plant management activities. In addition, special sessions are planned on managing algal blooms and on operational strategies for monitoring, managing and assessing aquatic plant control in Florida waters.

Dozens of additional presentations are planned on a wide range of aquatic plant research and management topics. Examples include:

  •     Current status of hydrilla risk assessment in the Great Lakes
  •     Using remote sensing technology to monitor important weeds like giant salvinia
  •     The first U.S. finding of wooly frogs mouth weed
  •     Managing cyanobacteria to improve wildlife habitat for threatened and endangered species
