This information is preliminary or provisional and is subject to revision. A Guide to the Control and Management of Invasive Phragmites. The pyrolytic kinetics of Phragmites australis was investigated using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) method with linear temperature programming process under an inert atmosphere. Recently conclusive evidence for hybridization between the introduced and the more distantly related Gulf Coast lineage was confirmed (Lambertini et al. Biological Invasions 12: 103-111. Meyerson, L.A., C. Lambertini, M.K. 2006). Little black spots are sometimes found on the culms of the native lineage, which are caused by a native fungus that has not yet adapted to the introduced form (Swearingen and Saltonstall 2010). The investigated characteristics include plant composition structure, species diversity and community similarity in three kinds of Phragmites australis wetlands, i.e. Spartina alterniflora and invasive Phragmites australis stands have similar greenhouse gas emissions in a New England marsh. The United States Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA, NRCS) has designated Phragmites australis to be a 'FACW', which is roughly equivalent to a 75% chance of this plant occurring in wetlands (USDA, NRCS 2016). 2014). In this study, we compared ecological characteristics of wetland vegetation in a series of restoration projects that were carried out in the wetlands of Yellow River Delta. Leaves of the invasive subspecies are a bluish gray-green, while those of the native lineage are typically a lighter yellow-green (MNFI 2016, Swearingen and Saltonstall 2010). PHRAGMITES AUSTRALIS) IN THE UNITED STATES . berlandieri, and the nonnative common reed haplotype are distinguished morphologically by the Flora of North America and Blossey . Ruiz, B. Steves, and J.T. Common reed is a perennial wetland grass that is able to grow to heights of 15 feet or more. Culms of the introduced lineage are rigid and have a rougher texture than the native, which is usually smooth and shiny (MNFI 2016). Phragmites australis. Visual effects, such as browning or withering of the plants, may not occur for several weeks (Avers et al. Potential for Biological Control of Phragmites australis in North America. 2006). [7] The North American native subspecies, P. a. subsp. ex Conert, Phragmites dioicus Hack. Journal of Ecology 60: 585-610. Available: http://www.nps.gov/plants/alien. Evidence for natural hybridization between native and introduced Phragmites australis in Chesapeake Bay watershed. Introduced Phragmites australis subsp. These near-monoculture stands can consist of 100% invasive phragmites. Trin. The information has not received final approval by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and is provided on the condition that neither the USGS nor the U.S. Government shall be held liable for any damages resulting from the authorized or unauthorized use of the information. 2015). exSteud., described as one of the most widely distributed angiosperms [ 1, 2] is commonly found in freshwater and marine wetlands and along the upland edge of tidal marshes. Confirmed field hybridization of native and introduced Phragmites australis (Poaceae) in North America. However, there are recent studies that show that hybridization does occur in the nature, just at seemingly low levels (Saltonstall et al, 2014). americanus and berlandieri), though there is talk of raising subsp. Available: http://invasions.si.edu/nemesis/. The ligule is a ring of hairs averaging 1 to 2 mm (0.4 to 0.8 in) in length. Initial introduction to the United States was likely via solid ballast and/or packing material from shipping (Swearingen and Saltonstall 2010). The leaves are long for a grass, 20–50 cm (7.9–19.7 in) and 2–3 cm (0.79–1.18 in) broad. The Phragmites australis is a common aquatic plant in temperate wetlands belonging to the family Poaceae and its name comes from the Greek sound phragma which. 2010). Kettenring, and D.F. The morphological characters presented here are in order of stronger characters to weaker characters. (2014) reviewed Phragmites literature to see where gaps lie in management of this invasive species. Imazapyr is highly effective on controlling Phragmites as it acts slowly and can remain active in the soil during the following year or more (Aver et al. 2006, Klein 2011). Levia, D.R. Common reed is a large rhizomatous/stoloniferous cool season grass obtaining heights of up to 4 m (13 ft) with stems averaging 0.5 to 1.5 cm (0.2 to 0.6 in) in diameter. 2006). The World Checklist of Selected Plant Families, maintained by Kew Garden in London, accepts the following four species: 2006, Klein 2011). Meyerson, L. A., D. V. Viola, and R. N. Brown. In Europe, common reed is rarely invasive, except in damp grasslands where traditional grazing has been abandoned. Livestock as Potential Biological Control Agent for an Invasive Wetland Plant. [Accessed 18 May 2016]. In addition to economic impacts, the introduced Phragmites poses a risk to human life and property. After germination a rhizome takes 2-4 years to flower for the first time (Haslam 1971). The leaf sheaths of the introduced Phragmites adhere more tightly to the culm and persist as long as it remains standing, whereas those of the native lineage adhere less tightly and peel back eventually dropping off the culm once the leaf dies particularly at the lower nodes exposing the stem below (MNFI 2016, Swearingen and Saltonstall 2010). Corresponding Author. communication). For the introduced lineage, the upper glume ranges in size from 4.5-7.5 mm, with most being <6 mm and the lower glume ranges in size from 2.5-5.0 mm, most being <4 mm; the native subspecies has an upper glume ranges in size from 5.5-11.5 mm, with most being >6 mm and lower glume is ranges in size from 3.5-6.5 mm, with most being >4 mm (Swearingen and Saltonstall 2010). Care should be taken to clean all equipment used for mechanical removal prior to transportation from the treatment site (Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative 2015). The development and establishment of young plants of Phragmites communis. Clayton, Phragmites communis var. Upper glume lanceolate; 5–10 mm long; without keels; 3–5 veined (Clayton et al. Leaves are linear to lanceolate-linear; flat; drooping; leaf-blades deciduous at the ligule; 20–60 cm long; 8–32 mm wide with pointed tips (Clayton et al. Traditional drawdowns producing mudflats in early summer (as used to control other invasives) encourage the growth of Phragmites and should be conducted with extreme caution if Phragmites is present in the surrounding landscape (Avers et al. Culms are tan in color; ridged or ribbed; have a rougher texture than the native common reed (Swearingen and Saltonstall 2010). [5], Common reed is suppressed where it is grazed regularly by livestock. These eventually help disperse the minute seeds. Crép., Phragmites vulgaris Britton, Sterns & Poggenb., Phragmites vulgaris var. The roots grow so deep and strong that one burn is not enough. AoB Plants: pls022. berlandieri (E. restored P. australis wetlands (R1, R2, R3 and R4: restored in 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2009, respectively), natural P. australis wetland (N) and degraded P. australis E-mail address: pysek@ibot.cas.cz. Rhizomes of the native subspecies rarely exceed 15 mm in diameter and are a darker yellow than the introduced lineage (Swearingen and Saltonstall 2010). americanus × P. australis subsp.

It displaces native plants species such as wild rice, cattails, and native orchids. Grass family (Poaceae) Origin: Europe. Getsinger, K.D., L.S. comm. Where conditions are suitable it can also spread at 5 m (16 ft) or more per year by horizontal runners, which put down roots at regular intervals. As a wetland plant, Phragmites improves water quality by filtration and nutrient removal (Ailstock 2004). GrassBase - The Online World Grass Flora. Some experts suggest that use of fire alone may stimulate rhizome growth and cause the remaining population to become more vigorous (Avers et al. Phragmites australis (Cav.) Gallic acid released by phragmites is degraded by ultraviolet light to produce mesoxalic acid, effectively hitting susceptible plants and seedlings with two harmful toxins. 2014). ex Steudel (Poaceae), or common reed, is a worldwide perennial grass found in every continent except Antarctica. Phragmites australis, known as common reed, is a broadly distributed wetland grass growing nearly 20 ft (6 m) tall. Kristin Saltonstall, Associate Scientist, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute . 2016. Older references do not distinguish the subspecies, but there are a number of key differences now known between subsp. Blossey, B., M. Schwarzländer, P. Häfliger, R. Casagrande, and L. Tewksbury. 2004. Lemma are glabrous; lanceolate; 8–15 mm long; membranous; acuminate; with somewhat in-rolled margins. This review suggests that (1) management efforts should be shifted towards restoring native plant communities rather than just eradicating Phragmites stands since a healthy native plant community can better withstand Phragmites invasion, (2) management needs to switch to watershed-scale efforts in coastal regions and/or larger management units inland as Phragmites are not restricted to the Great Lakes coast line, and (3) wetlands and watersheds should be ranked to identify ecosystems that would most benefit from Phragmites eradication to insure efforts are best utilized. Researchers have found 201 species (164 insects, 7 mites, and 30 fungi) associated with P. australis outside North America, and there appear to be several promising biological control candidate species from Europe (Tewksbury et al. Leaf-blade apex attenuates; filiform (Clayton et al. Burning after herbicide treatment reduces standing dead stem and litter biomass, which may help to encourage germination of native plants in the following growing season (Saltonstall 2005). is the most common and dominant species that contributes to pro-ductivity and landscape. Available: www.in.gov/dnr/files/PHRAGMITES2.pdf. The erect stems grow to 2–6 metres (6 ft 7 in–19 ft 8 in) tall, with the tallest plants growing in areas with hot summers and fertile growing conditions. 2014). Phragmites australis has a moderate beneficial effect in the Great Lakes. Grant C-06-26. 2015). Imazapyr should be applied to actively growing green foliage after full leaf elongation. The coverage of the … Aquatic Invasive Species – Plants. In reed 2014). australis hybrid along the Atlantic coastal plain of North America (Wu et al. Vegetative spread by below-ground rhizomes can result in dense stands that have more than 200 shoots/m2 (Haslam 1972). Richt., Phragmites communis var. australis) and two North American (subsps. It is in flower from July to September, and the seeds ripen from August to October. 2014). 2015. 2006). Trin. 2011, Brown pers. Larval and Juvenile fish seem to be the most negatively affected by Phragmites (Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative). In the Yellow River Delta, we conducted a field experiment in which biochar was not added (control) or was added to the soil surface (surface addition) or to the soil at the rhizosphere position (rhizosphere addition) of Phragmites australis in each of three sites exclusively dominated by P. australis and differing in salt concentrations (1, 5 and 10‰). 2011, Marr pers. Fourn., Phragmites capensis Nees, Phragmites caudatus Nees ex Meyen, Phragmites chilensis Steud.. Culms (stems) erect; hollow; reed-like; simple; 150–600 cm long; 5-15 mm thick; hollow internodes (Clayton et al. Plants growing in harsh environments may not be able to flower, so the only mode of reproduction is vegetative (Haslam 1972). These include Vernon, Osoyoos, … 2007. australis is a hardy species that can survive and proliferate in a wide range of environmental conditions, but prefers the wetland-upland interface (Avers et al. 1994). University of Michigan-Dearborn. What Are Its Characteristics? Phragmites australis subsp. The leaf sheath is open. The common reed, Phragmites australis (Cav.) Physical Characteristics Phragmites australis is a PERENNIAL growing to 3.6 m (11ft) by 3 m (9ft) at a fast rate. 2014). Biological flora of the British Isles: Phragmites communis. Distinguishing Between Native and Non-native Phragmites australis: Many morphological characteristics can be used to distinguish native Phragmites australis subsp. Spikelets solitary; pedicelled (Clayton et al. Floret callus elongated; 1–1.25 mm long; bearded; obtuse. Its leaves are alternate, up to 70 cm long and 3.5 cm wide, and smooth in appearance. This method has shown effective in small areas that previously received direct sunlight and could be ideal in locations where use of herbicide would impact nearby native plants (Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative 2015). Table 1. Excavation of sediments may be effective at control but if small fragments of root are left in the soil, they may lead to reestablishment. Biological Control 23:191-212. Introduced Phragmites has an average lifetime of 4.5 years, but may live up to 6 years, when longevity is defined as the lifetime of an individual rhizome, but due to its clonal growth abilities, stands have been known to survive for 1000’s of years (Haslam 1972). The plant's flowers are 15-30 cm long and 5-20 cm wide. Effective control is likely to require multiple treatments using a combination of methods. [Accessed several times], Gucker, C. L. 2008. [Accessed May 31 2016], United States Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA, NRCS) The PLANTS Database. 2012). Mendelssohn, M.H.G Gustafsson, B. Olesen, T. Riis, B.K. ... should be area-specific based off your property’s unique characteristics. Phragmites australis, known as Phragmites or common reed, is a non-native, invasive plant that dominates the land by out-competing surrounding native vegetation. The introduced common reed forms impenetrable monocultures and is capable of dominating wetlands with its increased canopy height within a few years (Rudrappa 2009). Notes on Phragmites australis (Poaceae: Arundinoideae) in North America. Bobolink and sparrows eat its seeds, while numerous insects eat the vegetation. This time period was chosen based on multiple trips to the field sites throughout summer and fall and on input from local land managers. Phragmites: Questions and Answers. Data Source and Documentation: About our new maps. Mechanical control should be conducted to minimize soil disruption, which encourages re-sprouting (Avers et al. Available http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/stdprodconsume/groups/lr/@mnr/@sorr/documents/document/stdprod_086861.pdf. restored P. australis wetlands (R1, R2, R3 and R4: … However, they can also be transported on birds, or by water, via waterways or by flooding (Haslam 1972). Flowers typically occur in August and September and form bushy panicles that are usually purple or golden in color with 2 lodicules, 3 anthers, and a glabrous ovary (Clayton et al. 2002). 2016. 2002). [Accessed 18 May 2016]. variegatus (Hitchc. Leaves are 8-16 inches … Alaska Exotic Plants Information Clearinghouse (AKEPIC). 2002. When wetland hydrology, structure, and function are altered, wildlife is displaced. Journal of Botanical Research Institute of Texas 1:385-388. 2006). Saltonstall, K. and D. Hauber. australis and americanus: (B. Batt, MDOT, pers. 102(5): 805-812. 2006, Klein 2011). The investigated characteristics include plant composition structure, species diversity and community similarity in three kinds of Phragmites australis wetlands, i.e. Identification: Introduced Phragmites australis subsp. If stand has substantial amount of old stem tissue, allow new growth to reach approximately 5 feet tall before treatment. The list of references for all nonindigenous occurrences of Phragmites australis australis are found here. 2006). 2014, Wu et al. Burdick, K.M. americanus (sometimes considered a separate species, Phragmites americanus), is markedly less vigorous than European forms. Bird surveys conducted in tidal wetlands of Connecticut showed that Phragmites-dominated marshes were characterized by a lower diversity of birds than adjacent mixed marshes. Biological Control of Invasive Plants in the Eastern United States. 2010, Saltonstall et al. comm. Saltonstall, K. 2002. P. australis dominated or P. latifolius Mechanical control (e.g., weed whips, mowers, brush hogs, flail mowers, hand cutting) may be effective at slowing the spread of established stands but it unlikely to be successful in eradicating a stand if not used in concert with herbicide application (Saltonstall 2005). Wersal, P.D. Based on the biology and ecology of P. australis in North America European rhizome feeders are being given the highest priority as a biological control agent because it is anticipated that attack of below ground rhizomes will kill aboveground shoots, therefore reducing storage reserves and recovery potential, and disconnecting rhizomes, further reducing the competitive ability of Phragmites (Tewksbury et al. Leaf sheaths adhere tightly to culm throughout the growing season; persistent (Swearingen and Saltonstall 2010). State of Resources Reporting: Phragmites in Ontario. australis is the first to be positively identified in the United States, despite overlap in the geographical distribution, habitat requirements, and phenology of the parental lineages, so has been deemed likely that compatibility between introduced and native lineages is low (Saltonstall et al. Moreover, many insects, birds (including yellowthroat, marsh wren, salt marsh sparrow, least bittern, red-winged blackbird, and some wading birds), and muskrats use Phragmites as shelter or nest material (Kiviat 2010).
