The following is an incomplete list of aquatic invasive plants found in, or adjacent to, the Capital-Mohawk PRISM. Click on the name to read individual species details courtesy of NYIS. For information on the difference between an emerging and widespread plant, check out our Tier List, which ranks the species of concern for the region in order of abundance and management strategy. Tiers 1 and 2 are considered emerging species which need to be responded to quickly once found.
Widespread Aquatic Invasive Plants
Emerging plants are species that have not established fully in the region, giving us a chance to stop these invaders in their tracks through eradication and rapid response efforts. If you believe you have identified one of these plants, please contact PRISM staff using the contact page and/or upload your observation to iMapInvasives.
Tier 1 Species (Not yet in PRISM):
Tier 2 Species (Eradication in PRISM is feasible):
