Auger. Research results, new cleanup projects, and success stories about “stopping the spread” should also be available on the site for our partners, colleagues, and the Completed by Holly Bickerton for The Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation - November 2007 (40 pages), The Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation, **We have moved! The scientific name of common reed is Phragmites australis (Cav.) Though showing some Phragmites er ættkvísl fjögurra tegunda fjölærra grasa sem vaxa í votlendi í tempruð- og hitabeltis- svæðum um heiminn. Native Range: Phragmites australis is native to North America and commonly found around the world. Waste water from lavatories and greywater from kitchens is routed to an underground septic tank-like compartment where the solid waste is allowed to settle out. Non-native Phragmites, also known as common reed, is a perennial, aggressive wetland grass that outcompetes native plants and displaces native animals. Inflorescence en forme de fanion ou de plume. (Range map provided courtesy of the USDA website While it is surmised that Phragmites was first introduced along the eastern seaboard, invasive Phragmites plants have been identified and located farther west and north of the original point of introduction. For more information on handling invasive phragmites and other species in accordance with the Invasive Species Act, visit the Ontario government resource Managing Invasive Species in Ontario . Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Invasive Phragmites Best Management Practices, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Peterborough, Ontario. July 13, 2015 Kimberly Bourke, U.S. Geological Survey, Contractor Wesley Bickford, U.S. Geological Survey, Pathways Trainee, PhD student at University of Michigan Although non-native Phragmites australis reigns supreme in terms of publicity, it is important remember that we also have stands of native Phragmites throughout the Great Lakes region. Phragmites australis, also known as the European common reed or “phrag,” first appeared along the St. Lawrence River in the early 1900s. Phragmites australis var.

In Ontario, it is illegal to import, deposit, release, breed/grow, buy, sell, lease or trade invasive phragmites, as it is restricted under the Invasive Species Act. australis.Therefore, outside the impoundment are large monocultures of invasive Phragmites whereas inside this the habitat is dominated by Typha spp. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Ontario Parks, Canadian Wildlife Service and the Nature Conservancy of Canada (“the project team”) have recognized invasive Phragmites australis as a significant threat to biodiversity and Species at Risk at Long Point and Rondeau coastal marshes. While there is a native variety, it appears to be much less aggressive and harmful than its alien counterpart. Invasive populations of Common Reed must be managed in order to protect rare dune plants that it might outcompete, valued plants and animals whose habitat it might dominate and degrade, and healthy ecosystems that it might greatly alter. One strain of this species is thought to be exotic or hybrid and … established phragmites, complete eradi-cation may not be achievable. Invasive Phragmites australis (European Common Reed) has been described as Canada's "worst" invasive plant.. Reasons for the rapid growth are unclear but lower water levels and a warmer climate may explain the change. The entire Province/State is coloured, regardless of where in that Province/State it occurs. Phragmites australis (Common Reed), a non-native, invasive grass has become widespread throughout southern Ontario. The displacement of native species and the formation of dense monocultures also have negative impacts on insects, birds and other species that rely on intact dune habitats.
