Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants
The UF/IFAS Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants is a multidisciplinary research, teaching and extension unit directed to develop environmentally sound techniques for the management of aquatic and natural area weed species and to coordinate aquatic plant research activities within the State of Florida. The Center was established in 1978 by the Florida legislature. Directed by Dr. William Haller. the Center utilizes expertise from many departments within UF/IFAS and its Agricultural Research and Education Centers throughout Florida.
The mission of the CAIP Information Office is to inform and educate all stakeholders about the impacts and management of invasive plants.
