"Science-Driven Invasive Plant Management" 

One of our problems as land managers has been the failure to recognize that when we see invasive species begin to establish, the weeds themselves are not the actual cause of the problem. The weeds are merely a symptom of the problem. The real problem is, more often than not, an ecological process in disrepair. These ecological processes in disrepair are what drive a plant community to change. 

EBIPM provides the scientific principles so managers can combine their knowledge and experience with ecology to make decisions that have a greater likelihood of success and sustainability.

"Implementing EBIPM"

One of the toughest challenges land managers face is the advancing infestations of invasive weeds. Treating weeds is often really only treating a symptom. To be successful, managers must ‘get to the roots’ and treat the underlying cause of invasion.

‘Implementing EBIPM’ takes you into the field with the range ecologists and scientists and plant physiologists who’ve developed this decision-making process called Ecologically-Based Invasive Plant Management.

Interpreting Indicators of Rangeland Health training videos

The Rangeland Health Assessment provides a method to gather a qualitative assessment to help identify areas where the natural resources may be in danger of becoming degraded or may already be in a degraded state.

Interpreting Indicators of Rangeland Health leads the user through the process of a Rangeland Health Assessment and the BLM National Training Center offers a full suite of videos that takes the viewer through the Interpreting Indicators of Rangeland Health training.

The video that corresponds directly with the EBIPM University Curriculum is "Module 1.2 The Five-step Process".

To access the video, click on the link at the bottom left of the BLM National Training Center Interpreting Indicators of Rangeland Health webpage and then click on the "Module 1.2 The Five-step Process" tab at the left.

"A Working Ranch"

"A Working Ranch with an effective medusahead management program” tells the story of Ben and Barbara McGough who purchased the Circle Bar Ranch (Mitchell, OR) in 2003 and soon learned the ranch had a serious infestation of medusahead. They realized they needed to either “get on board with some kind of project to control the medusahead or sell now.”

With the help of ARS Ecologist Roger Sheley and others at the Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center in Burns, OR, Ben and Barbara began using EBIPM to focus on treating the true causes of the infestation and get a hold on the invasion.
