ERDC, district researching effectiveness of biocontrol of invasive tree in south Texas
Brazilian peppertree saplings are used in biocontrol research, the use of insects to control an invasive plant species, at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The goal of the research is to determine the best way to incorporate biocontrol to mitigate the invasive Brazilian peppertree problems across the U.S. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo)
