The invasive species Tamarix first attracted the public eye in the 1990's when it was suspected of contributing to widespread drought and wildfires in the Western United States. Once purported to consume as much water as entire cities, very few plant species have received as much scientific, public, and political discussion and debate as Tamarix. Written by 44 of the field's most prominent scholars and scientists, this volume compiles 25 essays on this fascinating species--its biology, ecology, politics, management, and the ethical issues involved with designating a particular species as qgoodq or qbadq. The book analyzes the controversy surrounding the Tamarisk's role in our ecosystems and what should be done about it.Bureau of Reclamation, Denver Technical Service Center, Albuquerque Area Office, Brantley Dam Field Office, Elephant Butte Division Office.
