1 USE AND CONTROL OVER EXOTIC SPECIES IN RESTORATION
Make sure this is in order Group 1 Sara L. McPherson Erin Swallow Nayeli Carvajal

2 Outline Terminology (Sara)
Exotics in Mojave Desert: implication and prioritization (Sara) Approaches and Concerns in removing exotic (Erin) Removing exotic may threaten native species (Erin) Control Methods (Nayeli, Sara) Are there communities that are not invasible (Nayeli) Using exotic in restoration (Nayeli) Conclusion (Sara)

3 Terminology Exotic: any species that has established beyond their historical range (*Richardson, et al., 2000) accidentally or intentionally. Invasive: characterized by geographic distribution, the degree of threat whether socially, economically or environmentally (competitiveness, invasiveness, and ability to engineer ecosystems …Bromus and fire regimes) and control treatments.

4 Mojave Desert: Implications and Prioritization
Research suggests invasions impose irreversible social, aesthetic, economic and environmental consequences. Exotic pose a serious threat in at least 194 of the 368 national park units in the USA (NPS, 1997). Management challenges arise because of the extreme variability of impacts Consider species in the Mojave Parks About 200 exotic species, prioritization is necessary because eradication of all exotics may not be a financially viable (billions annually) Early detection vs. eradication

6 Susceptibility & Resistance
Disturbance regime, including type, frequency, duration and magnitude (Elton, 1958, Fox, 196, rejmakek, 1989). intermediate disturbance hypothesis (IDH) predicts the highest diversity may be strongest at intermediate (intensity, frequency, size, time) fuels reduction programs (Milberg, 1995; DAntonio, 2000b; 2000), post-wild-fire (planting for soil stabilization, silvi-culture and other forest management practices), spread/planting contaminated seeds livestock grazing (Hoobs, 1992), burrow and horses (hay) damaged soils/vegetation (*McDougall, et al., 2005), roadsides and railways (Wilson, 1992; Trombulak, 2000; Johnston, 2001; clear-cuts (Appleby, 1998) Mining (Lead, zinc, gold, silver, copper, gypsum, gravel, limestone) Northern and Eastern Mojave Desert Management Plan (NEMO), Desert Tortoise Recovery Plan, West Mojave Plan (WMP), The Federal Land Policy Management Act of 1976 (BLM purpose), California Desert Conservation Area (CDCA), Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), Desert Wildlife Management Areas (DWMAs)

7 The diversity-invasibility paradigm
There are two popular diversity-invisibility paradigms competitive exclusion (negative; small scale) and coexistence (positive; large scale; diverse communities are more prone to invasion); both assume resources are limiting, competition is a dominant structuring force in communities, and predict the similar natural patterns. Eltonian theory: low diversity habitats are more vulnerable to invasion than areas (ecosystems) of high diversity in other words increasing native diversity (richness) armors a community against invasion (repels invasion, decrease invasibility). .

8 Control Methods Mechanical: pulling, cutting or damaging the plant.
Advantages: species specific and cost effective Disadvantage: labor and time intensive (Tue et. al.) Chemical: Use of herbicides which can be defined as any chemical substance that is used to specifically kill plants. Advantages: They are effective, work fast. Disadvantages: they may pose threats to the environment (non-biodegradable and slightly toxic). Some weeds may become resistant. Fig. 1: ativeLand/Chapter3/front%20covert.jpg

9 Biological control is the use of animals, fungi, or other microbes to feed upon, parasitize or otherwise interfere with a targeted pest species. Advantages: leaves no chemical residues. Disadvantages: some biological control programs have resulted in significant, irreversible harm to untargeted organisms and to ecological processes Prescribed burns: repeated burns are sometimes necessary to effectively control weedy plants. Fire is sometimes necessary to prompt the germination of some plants, including a number of rare and endangered species. Some natural areas such as DNWR does not use burns as a management tool due to their de facto wilderness management paradigm.

The Nature Conservancy. Fig. 3: hreats/Prescribed_Fire_124.jpg

10 Prescribed grazing: Prescribed grazing is the application of domestic livestock grazing at a specified season and intensity to accomplish specific vegetation management goals. Typically employ domestic sheep, goats, and cattle; may also use horses, pigs, geese, or domesticated native ungulates (USFWS official website). Prescribed grazing systems incorporate aspects of both natural and domesticated grazing systems. Fig. 4: gMo dule/methods/grazing/introduction.html

13 Study Treatment Results Effectiveness of treatment (Ullia, et al., 2010) Propane flaming About 90% dry matter reduction achieved with propane dose ranging from 40 to 80 kg ha21 (Amisi, et al., 2010) Raw dairy vs. composted manure soils with raw dairy manure may decrease the competitiveness whereas composted manure increase competitiveness (Trader, et al., 2009) halosulfuron applications reduce shoot dry weight 50% compared with only 8 g/ha for S; differing degrees of resistance to halosulfuron. (Kahramanoglu, et al., 2010) metribuzin provide satisfactory control (>90%) of redroot pigweed (Evans, et al., 2009) Clove oil and vinegar 200-grain vinegar applied at 636 L/ha provided 100% control (6 d after treatment [DAT]) and mortality (9 DAT) of two-leaf redroot pigweed; as growth stage advanced, control and biomass reduction decreased and survival increased (Dahlquist, et al., 2007) Temperature Temperatures of 50 C and above were lethal for seeds of all species. tumble pigweed unaffected at 42 C and below (Cristanudo, et al., 2007) At 10 and 15_C constant temperatures, no significant seed germination occurred there was no germination at 10_C, but at 15_C more than 60% germination occurred. (Treasdale, et al., 2005) Hairy vetch residue, ammonium hydroxide Hairy vetch residue is capable of suppressing weeds, but low levels of residue can intermittently stimulate the emergence of weeds, particularly smooth pigweed. A similar response to ammonium hydroxide solutions was observed (Moran, et al., 2005) Water deficit and shade stress All treatments decreased plant height and weight (Grichar, et al., 2005) atrazine, pendimethalin, trifluralin Tumble pigweed was controlled at least 99% with atrazine plus pendimethalin or trifluralin application (Santos, et al., 2004) Phosphorus Weed-free lettuce fresh yield was 20% higher with banded P than broadcast applications. (Hanson, et al., 2003) fungicide propiconazole reduced the biomass accumulation 15 to 63% (Hendricks, et al., 1975) thiourea, sodium nitrite, hydroxylamine salts catechol, pyrogallol Germination of some dormant seeds is promoted by solutions

15 Using Exotics in Restoration
Nayeli Carvajal

16 In which instances have exotic plants been used for restoration?
Prevent soil erosion: where soil erosion or the potential for it is severe practitioners use fast-growing but sterile exotic grasses to quickly establish cover (D’Antonio and Meyerson, 2002). Figure 6:http://www.forestandrange.org/rangeland%20weeds%20 module/img/sub3-4_SpottedKnapweedPresc.jpg Enrich sterile soils: In other cases where land uses such as mining and overgrazing have reduced soil fertility, fast-growing exotic species (N-fixing) have been used to ameliorate harsh conditions may eventually accelerate the recover of natives (D’Antonio and Meyerson, 2002) (Nevada Test Site). In some degraded sites it may be necessary to introduced an exotic species to assist in the restoration process (D’Antonio and Meyerson, 2002). Nitrogen-fixing species - Nitrogen-fixing species are generally essential for adding nitrogen and building soils on landslides or other disturbed areas that have shallow or undeveloped soils. Most nitrogen-fixing species require innoculation and may benefit from phosphorous fertilization. Innoculation involves the introduction of the specific nitrogen-fixing bacteria to the roots or seed of the plant before planting. One common practice is to collect and use the soil duff or litter adjacent to the same species growing in the field to inoculate the roots or seed before planting. Figure 7:

17 Secure the site: Alien species that form dense colonies can help reduce invasions by other aliens (Ewel and Putz, 2004). Nurse Plants: By shielding against intense radiation and heat loading, the light shade east by some plants can facilitate colonization by others (Ewel and Putz, 2004). Guide composition: Selective consumption of an alien plant by an alien herbivore can direct succession towards vegetation of a desired life form (Ewel and Putz, 2004). Provision of surrogate resources: True restoration of the original ecosystem is sometimes impossible due to extinctions, but can be approximated by using non-native species (Ewel and Putz, 2004).

18 Biological control: Use of exotic species that predate on or compete with the invasive species (D’Antonio and Meyerson, 2002). Release of insect as a control method for controlling exotic plants (Pearson et al., 2000) Fig 8. Spotted knapweed (Centaurea maculosa) Fig 9. Gall fly (Urophora quadrifasciata)

19 Why we shouldn’t use exotic plants for restoration?
In some cases exotic grasses may reduce the growth of native seedling in the critical first years after disturbance (D’Antonio and Meyerson, 2002). Unplanned biological control may result in introduced species becoming invasive themselves.

20 Recommendations The exotic species used for restoration should themselves not be invasive or have the potential to become problematic (D’Antonio and Meyerson, 2002). Consider the options carefully. The effects of the introduction of these biological controls have not been studied in depth (D’Antonio and Meyerson, 2002). Depends on the goal of the restoration project. If the goal of the project is full recovery of native assemblage then exotic plants should not be used for restoration(D’Antonio and Meyerson, 2002). Consider Cost Benefit Risk

22 Things TO CONSIDER IN Invasive Species Management and Control
Erin Swallow

23 Overview Introduction Practical: Bromus rubens Political: Wild horses
Why do we need to remove it anyway? Tamarix Phragmites spp. Impacts of Removal: Tanta natans Unexpected Consequences: Santa Cruz Islands

24 Introduction It is not as simple as deciding to remove a species not native to an area A variety of issues must be considered Feasibility Cost Consequences – to the environment, other species and the community

25 Practical Successful control requires adequate
Money - $32 - $42 million spent annually on plant and animal management under ESA – 90% related to exotics Time – Hand removal is time and labor intensive Ongoing support – Common reed removal takes years of follow-up In some cases, the species is to well established to be completely removed

26 Bromus rubens Red brome Invasive Mediterranean grass
Increases fire hazard Thoroughly naturalized Best option to limit spread, not eradicate Figure 10:

27 Political Control of exotics can be controversial
Figure 11 Control of exotics can be controversial Culling species – Animal rights Uninformed public – tree clearing, burns Cost

28 Wild Horses and Burros Protected by the Wild and Free-roaming Horses and Burros Act (1971) BLM mandated to control populations Not given adequate resources Figure 12

29 Wild Horses and Burros Overpopulating the range
Realistic management unacceptable to the public Issues of competition and disturbance persist Figure 13

30 Impacts of Removal The act of removal can negatively impact the overall environment Disturbance from removal Lingering impacts from chemicals

31 Trapa natans European water chestnut
Invasive water plant that forms thick mats in waterways Interferes with light penetration, fish communities, dissolved oxygen, recreation Figure 14

32 Trapa natans Small infestations can be removed by hand
Figure 15 Small infestations can be removed by hand Large infestations require repeated dredging Mount Holyoke Dredged Drained Removed sediment Figure 16 (both from same page)

33 Why do we need to remove it anyway?
Not all exotic species are causing significant harm…some may even help certain species!

34 Phragmites spp. What is it? Concerns: Common reed
Aggressively colonizes wetlands Concerns: Reduced biodiversity Lost ecosystem services Figure 17

35 Phragmites spp. Early colonizer – stabilizes soil, provides habitat
Cover for wildlife Nesting Foraging Protection from predators Protection from elements Expensive and difficult to remove Recolonizes quickly Figure 18

36 Unexpected Consequences
Ecological systems are interconnected, any change can have unforeseen consequences Need to consider carefully before action is taken

37 Tamarix What is it? Concerns: Saltcedar, Tamarisk
Colonizes along water ways Concerns: Water supply Wildlife habitat Changes soil properties Species diversity Figure 19

38 Tamarix Erosion control Birds
Southwestern Willow Flycatcher Yellow-billed cuckoo Leveling Tamarix without adequate follow-up destroys bird habitat Figure 20

39 Santa Cruz Island Overgrazed by feral pigs and sheep
Threatened the endangered Santa Cruz Island fox and other species DDT wiped out bald eagles Golden eagles arrived – preyed on pigs and foxes Restoration efforts removed pigs and sheep

40 Santa Cruz Island Pig removal lead to increased predation pressure on foxes Endangered golden eagles removed and bald eagles reintroduced Figure 21

42 Conclusion Where do we go from here?
Prevention (early detection; critical) vs. eradication Foundation for prevention, eradication and control (Abella, Spencer, Hoines, & Nazarchyk, 2009; Hobbs & Humphries, August 1995; Hulme, 2006) 9factors hunger management: scientific research has a current symposium encompasses 120 competing hypotheses the quantity of highly invasive candidate (tens of thousands; Sax & Brown, 2000), ability to discern significant changes, inadequate tracking indicators, predictability of regional composition and introduction models, lag times in population explosion, timing of control measure systems for assessing harmful species not presently documented in the region and corresponding adaptive monitoring for potential invaders (Hulme, 2006).
