The DIISC Team has implemented or sponsored multiple projects to strengthen communication and collaboration among organizations involved in invasive species management in the Delta.
Delta Invasive Species Symposium
The DIISC Team organizes a biennial Delta Invasive Species Symposium. The first symposium was held in 2015. Click here to visit the Delta Invasive Species Symposium webpage (web link)
Synthesis Paper: Invasive Aquatic Vegetation Management in the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta: Status and Recommendations
DIISC Team members and speakers from the 2015 Symposium on Invasive Aquatic Vegetation (web link) co-authored a review article that was published in San Francisco Estuary & Watershed Science in December 2017.
Investigations of Restoration Techniques That Limit Invasion of Tidal Wetlands
In 2017, UC Davis received $107,655 from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy’s Proposition 1 Grant Program to investigate restoration techniques to limit invasion of tidal wetlands. The project identifies improved methods for tidal wetland revegetation that reduce invasion by nonnative plants at Dutch Slough. The DIISC Team identified this project as a research priority in 2015 and participated in the grant proposal development.
