Plant Profiles are a "one-stop shop" of resources on invasive plants in California. Each plant's page contains links to Cal-IPC resources such as Invasive Plants of California's Wildlands, California Invasive Plant Inventory, articles from Cal-IPC News and Symposium Proceedings. Additional links provide access to photos, taxonomic descriptions, and management information.

More resources: Visit CalWeedMapper to view interactive maps and download reports by region or species. An illustrated list of Cal-IPC Inventory species is available at Calflora. See our Watchlist for additional species that are starting to show invasiveness.
