New Weed Science Journal: Invasive Plant Science and Management

from IPMnet NEWS* Issue #163 June 2008

The Weed Science Society of America (WSSA) has added a new journal to its stable of periodicals that includes WEED SCIENCE and WEED TECHNOLOGY. The addition is INVASIVE PLANT SCIENCE AND MANAGEMENT (IPSM), a peer-reviewed quarterly focusing on both the biology and ecology of invasive plants as well many other aspects relating to invasive plant management such as restoration, ecological and environmental impacts, and risk and/or cost benefit analyses applied to management. J.M. DiTomaso, well recognized weed scientist at the Univ. of California, Davis, serves as editor and notes that IPSM will also include case studies and report on new invasive plants, policy, regulatory legislation, and compliance therewith. Launched in 2008, IPSM volume 1, issue 1 is dated January-March and is available in both on-line and hard copy formats. Research articles each include an interpretive summary designed to provide a concise indication of the work's importance to field practitioners.
