The project is an international collaboration aimed at obtaining much-needed data on the abundance and distribution of Alliaria petiolata, Garlic Mustard. It involves a very basic protocol that standardizes sampling across sites, and takes place in late spring/early summer making it ideal for incorporation into field courses, nature surveys, and long-term monitoring and management efforts. The estimated duration of sampling for a team of two people is 3-6 hours per population. Academics who contribute to this endeavor will have the opportunity to contribute to manuscripts resulting from the work. For sampling protocol and additional information click here.
