There is $ 160,000 available for research on the biology and non-chemical management of an important recently introduced weedy species in California (e.g. Carduus acanthoides, Cortaderia jubata, Lepidium latifolium, Myriophyllulm aquaticum, Peganum harmala, etc). Write a short proposal (Max 8 double spaced pages) for a three-year project. Research methods should be described in detail. 5-15 literature references (mainly for methods) are expected with at least 5 of the references to professional literature (not web pages!).
