Hawaiian Ecosystems at Risk project (HEAR) Ageratina adenophora as a biocontrol target in Hawaii

Information and references regarding Ageratina adenophora as a biocontrol target in Hawaii are provided here. For further information, contact webmaster@hear.org.

Biocontrol agent: Entyloma compositarum
Status in Hawaii: No quantitative evaluations are available, but this fungus is considered effective against "Maui pamakani" (Ageratina adenophora). Fungal infestation of plants during wet periods coupled with the impact of previously introduced insects has resulted in other plants invading monotypic stands and in some cases replacing them.

The Hawaiian Ecosystems at Risk (HEAR) project is currently funded by the Pacific Basin Information Node (PBIN) of the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) through PIERC (USGS) with support from HCSU (UH Hilo). More details are available online. Pacific Basin Information Node (PBIN)National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII)
