    The goal of UMISC is to strengthen management of invasive species, especially prevention, control, and containment. Invasive species research, prevention, and management has seen great strides but much work still must be done. As the 2016 UMISC theme says, sharing innovative and practical solutions are the key to stopping the spread of invasive species in the Midwest and beyond. Expected audience includes: researchers, land managers, natural resource professionals, university personnel, landscape and nursery professionals, agriculture and forestry employees, environmental specialists, lake association members, land owners, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and anyone interested in managing the spread of invasive species in the Upper Midwest. Because UMISC brings a diverse audience of 500-600 or more attendees from across the region, there is an unparalleled breadth of knowledge and the conference provides numerous opportunities to network with professionals, land managers, researchers, nonprofits, and others. We hope you will join us for what will certainly be the most engaging and educational conference on invasive species in the Midwest. La Crosse, Wisconsin is a growing community with amazing access to hiking, biking, boating, and other outdoor activities. Attendees will also enjoy expanding dining and nighttime entertainment offerings. Conference Hosts are the Invasive Plants Association of Wisconsin, Midwest Invasive Plant Network, and the Minnesota Invasive Species Advisory Council.For more information, please visit: http://www.umisc.net/?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery

    The introduction and spread of invasive species in freshwater and marine environments is a worldwide problem that is increasing in frequency. There are various pathways by which non-indigenous invertebrate, fish, and plant species are introduced, become established and cause significant damage to coastal and freshwater ecosystems, and to the economies that depend upon them. Next to habitat loss, invasive species are considered the greatest threat to native biodiversity.
