YAMPA RIVER LEAFY SPURGE PROJECT
Leafy Spurge Resources
Yampa River Leafy Spurge Project GIS datasets are available for download from the GIS Data page.
An important new research paper has recently been published on leafy spurge biological control. The Biological Control of Leafy Spurge is a well written, comprehensive overview of leafy spurge biological control—and a confirmation that the YRLSP is on the right track with its biocontrol release project.
