Welcome to the archives of the Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative Research Round-Up! This is a monthly digest of published academic research relating to Phragmites. To view and search through all of the Research Round-Up articles visit the Recently Published Research page. If you haven’t already, sign up for our newsletter here to receive new research straight to your inbox.

How were these articles selected? 

There is lots of Phrag research out there and not all of it relates to the haplotype that is invasive in the Great Lakes. We made an effort to select articles that may be relevant to the GLPC community, regardless of the haplotype or location.

If you think we missed a relevant article, let us know and we’ll include it next month. Non-peer reviewed reports or white papers may be included if relevant.

How can I access the full content of the articles? 
A subscription is usually needed to access full articles. If you don’t have access through your institution, the author may be able to provide a copy if you contact them, or you could ask a colleague who has access. Due to copyright restrictions we are not able to distribute publications.

What’s the publication timeline for these papers? 
Because this newsletter lists current or newly released papers, those included here were published online or in print for the first time in July or August – i.e. papers will appear when published online and will not appear again when they re-appear in a numbered serial several months later. If you think we should do this differently, let us know.

Where else can I view current research? 
We are working on adding a database of previously published articles related to Phragmites to our website. In the meantime, keep an eye on the Current Research page of our website where we will add papers as they appear. We also have a Research section of our website. We welcome your contributions to the content of the website.

How can I share my research with the GLPC community? 
There are lots of options!
1) Send a notice to the community via the Phragmitesnet listserv.
2) Forward us the DOI once it’s available online and we’ll be sure to include it in the digest.
3) Write a blog post for our website or – even better – present your research in a webinar. Contact us for more information!

That’s all! Enjoy the articles below and be sure to contact us with your feedback.
