Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Ecologically based invasive plant management (EBIPM) is a systematic thinking and planning process to assist with applying the appropriate combination of tools and strategies to addrress the underlying cause of invasion rather than simply controlling invasive annual grass abundance. Cultivation history is an essential part of the EBIPM process because of the impacts past cultivation can have on a site. This guide highlights how knowing about historical cultivation can increase the chances of success in management of invasive species. It is designed to help landowners, land managers, and scientists with step-by-step instructions for researching the valuable cultivation history of the land on which they work.
