The purpose of the Invasive Plant Management Decision Analysis Tool (IPMDAT) is to assist The Nature Conservancy (TNC), as well as partner agencies and organizations, in deciding if an invasive plant management project is likely to be successful. A successful invasive plant management project should not only control an invasive plant, it should also achieve conservation goals such as maintaining or restoring the viability/health/resilience of desired species, natural communities, and/or ecosystem processes. The IPMDAT may also be used in cases where the invasive plant species threatens economic or human health, recreational use, or meeting legal obligations.
