Description: Technical Note
Introduction: The submersed plant hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillata L.f. Royle) has been recognized as a serious aquatic invasive species in the United States for several decades; it has even been called the “perfect aquatic weed” (Langeland 1996). The recent discovery of hydrilla in high-profile areas such as the inlet of Lake Cayuga, New York and in several miles of the Erie Canal near Tonawanda, New York has stimulated numerous questions regarding the biology, invasion ecology, and management of hydrilla in northern tier lakes and waterways. Given the likelihood for continued spread of hydrilla into northern waters, a September 2012 Symposium was organized by the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Aquatic Plant Control Research Program to identify research and management needs for the monoecious biotype of hydrilla. Researchers and managers from federal and state agencies, universities, non-profit organizations, and private industry gathered in Syracuse, New York to focus on monoecious hydrilla. This technical note summarizes key points and discussions that resulted from this Symposium.
