Invaders Database System, University of Montana  The INVADERS Database is a comprehensive database of exotic plant names and weed distribution records for five states in the northwestern United States. The spatial and temporal spread of weeds can be displayed using the historic distribution records in INVADERS. The INVADERS web site contains actual examples of how land management and weed regulatory agencies are using these data to improve their weed management programs. Noxious weed listings are provided for the 48 contiguous US states and six southern tier Canadian provinces.

Montana Noxious Weed Survey and Mapping System - Mission: To enhance the effectiveness of weed management by developing and implementing a standardized weed mapping system for Montana. 
Pacific Northwest Weed Management Handbook  Purpose: This handbook is designed as a quick and ready reference of weed control practices used in various cropping systems or site/situations in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Because chemical regulation of plant growth is complex and requires considerable knowledge, a large portion of the handbook is devoted to registered uses of herbicides, crop desiccants, and some plant growth regulators. Most uses of chemical regulators are based on research results of the Agricultural Experiment Stations or the Oregon State University Extension Service and the neighboring states of Idaho and Washington where circumstances are similar.  Otherwise, a few suggestions are included from research conducted in other states or from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Research Center at Beltsville, MD. In all cases, authors make every effort to list only registered herbicides and to ensure that the information conforms with product labels and company recommendations.
