The Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative is developing an adaptive management strategy called the Phragmites Adaptive Management Framework (PAMF). This framework will change the way Phragmites is managed throughout the Great Lakes basin and lead to approaches that maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of Phragmites management.
The Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative (GLPC) is a regional partnership established to improve communication and collaboration and lead to more coordinated, efficient, and strategic approaches to non-native Phragmites management, restoration, and research across the Great Lakes basin in both the United States and Canada.
The GLRI Phragmites Decision Support Tool (DST) Mapper is intended to provide resource managers with information to strategically develop effective Phragmites control and invasion prevention programs in the Great Lakes coastal zone (10 km inland from the shoreline). The Mapper consists of three integrated components: A distribution map of large (> 0.2 ha) stands of existing Phragmites. A map of estimated Phragmites habitat suitability based on current environmental conditions.
