Rush Skeletonweed Management Plan
A management plan providing a compendium of the most up-to-date information for the biology, ecology, and integrated management of the highly invasive rush skeletonweed infesting natural areas throughout the western U.S.

The Rush Skeletonweed Task Force, with support from the University of Idaho, hired MIA Consulting to compile the first official management plan for the invasive rush skeletownweed, Chondrilla juncea. We did an extensive literature review compiling the most up-to-date information for the biology, ecology, and integrated management of this highly invasive weed in North America. Numerous local resource managers and landowners were interviewed to facilitate the addition of case studies, through which interviewed individuals shared their personal experiences dealing with this weed in the U.S. Northwest.
