These documents outline methodologies used by the Oahu Early Detection Project for early detection of invasive plant species on Oahu, including building a target species list, roadside survey types, and deciding which species to control.

  1. Target list building Microsoft Word document icon: This is an outline of two ways to build a target list for early detection. (We used the second method.)

  2. High-risk site protocol Microsoft Word document icon: As part of building a target species list, we conducted surveys of high risk sites (i.e. nurseries, botanical gardens, agricultural experiment stations...) This document presents our logic and methodology for performing the surveys.

  3. Prioritizing for control Microsoft Word document icon: This guides decisions on controlling target species observed on roadside surveys.

  4. Appendix A (Initial assessment) Microsoft Word document icon: An initial filter for any species to be considered for further survey or control. We use this for any species located on high risk site surveys, species reported to us, or species located on road surveys. Our methodology for the appendix is outlined in the Prioritizing for control document.

  5. Roadside survey strategy Microsoft Word document icon: We identified these types of road surveys and are trying out several of them to evaluate their effectiveness.

RTF icon Some documents posted on the HEAR website are in Rich Text Format (RTF). Virtually any word processor can read these files. However, if your computer is not already set up to read these files, you can download the FREE MS Word reader and use it to view RTF files. You can set up most web browsers to automatically invoke this reader (as a "helper application" or "add-in") upon encountering documents of this type; refer to your browser's documentation for how to do this.
