There are lots of mapping products and tools that have been developed for Phragmites and many occurrence maps underway. Below is a short summary of these efforts. Let us know if you have additions for this list!
- The Great Lakes Early Detection Network is an invasive species network working to rapidly respond to new invasive species sightings in the Great Lakes states. You can report sitings of invasive species and you can sign up to receive an alert when new sightings for species are entered.
