Information on the basic biology and fire ecology of 60 nonnative invasive plant species has been added to FEIS since 2001 (table 1). This effort increased the coverage of nonnative invasive plants in FEIS by about 40%, to 102 species as of Jan. 1, 2007 (www.fs.fed.use/database/feis/plants/weed/index.html). Managers use FEIS reviews of nonnative invasive species to address weed responses to wildland and prescribed fire, effects of weeds on fire regimes, and potential use of fire for control of weeds. A list of Internet links regarding nonnative plants and fire was also added to FEIS during this project (www.fs.fed.use/database/feis/plants/weed/weedpage.html).
