A contagious species
A ‘contagious’ species False-brome

  • Full geographic spread in North America is broadening

  • Present in Oregon, California, Washington (?), New York, Virginia, Michigan …

  • Equipment

  • Wildlife (deer)

  • Water?


Invasiveness
Invasiveness False-brome

  • Enemy Release Hypothesis

    • Roy et al. 2011

  • Evidence of within-species hybridization, multiple introductions to western US

    • Rosenthal et al. 2008


Landscape invasion typical process for false brome
Landscape invasion: False-brometypical process for false-brome

  • Starts in areas where people and wildlife travel:

    • Roadsides, Parking lots, Trailheads

  • Spreads rapidly along roadsides and forest edges

  • Also spreads quickly into closed-canopy forest

  • Spreads more slowly into prairies and pastures – but facilitated by isolated trees

Landscape control strategies
Landscape control strategies False-brome

  • Detect and control new and isolated patches

  • Contain large populations

    • Start with reducing seed production or eliminating plants in high traffic areas – Stop the spread!

      • Roads, trailheads, parking areas, hiking trails, game trails

  • After containment, move to eradication if feasible

Landscape control strategies1
Landscape control strategies False-brome

  • Establish partnerships, especially with adjacent landowners

    • Neighbors

    • Agencies

  • Use existing networks, if possible, to coordinate

    • Example: Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council with funding from OWEB, NFWF

      • Coordinated survey across multiple properties, outreach and education, control opportunities


Landscape control strategies2
Landscape control strategies False-brome

  • Land management activities

    • Before:

      • Eradicate false brome to avoid spreading to other sites

      • Clean equipment before entering new areas

    • After:

      • Clean equipment before leaving

    • Adopt strict contract language that stipulates these actions, with consequences.

  • Public outreach

    • Stop invasions before the start
