Hudsonia conducts detailed studies of the ecological relationships of an invader to other organisms, and develops management approaches that integrate these ecological relationships with site-specific goals and other ecosystem services such as water quality maintenance.
We currently focus on purple loosestrife, common reed (Phragmites) , water-chestnut, and Japanese knotweed. We have prepared a Phragmites Management Sourcebook and we offer a professional workshop on Phragmites ecology and management.
We have also published reviews of the ecology and management of water-chestnut and Japanese knotweed.
