Webinar: Targeting the triple threat, cheatgrass, medusahead, and ventenata: Ecological impacts, interactions & current management

These invasive annual grasses are devastating western natural areas and rangeland, resulting in landscape-scale transformations in a cycle that favors further invasion. Further Impacts include:

  • A continuous bed of fine fuel associated with an increase in frequency and intensity of rangeland wildfire
  • Significant reduction or elimination of desirable perennial species
  • Reduced forage quality for wildlife and livestock
  • Increased risks for wildlife and pollinator species
  • Resulting wildfires that are a threat to humans, wildlife, property, and infrastructure.
