However, recent DNA assessments suggest that that the Florida material differs from C. salviniae from Australia in some respects (Goolsby et al., 2000). Entomophaga 31: 11-17. 1980. Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA. The beetle Cyrtobagous salviniae was introduced in Australia and proved highly successful at limiting the fern, which (with the beetle) is now found in only a few scattered populations. South Carolina Aquatic Plant Management Plan. However, the sporangial sacs are usually empty of microscopic spores or with only a few deformed remnants.

Oxford University Press, New York. http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Pesky-Invasive-Plant-Turns-Up-in-Another-East-Texas-Waterway-353166401.html. Through high growth rates and slow decomposition rates, salvinia reduces the concentration of nutrients that would otherwise be available to primary producers and organisms that depend on them (Sharma and Goel, 1986; Storrs and Julien, 1996). Salvinia is spread within and between aquatic systems mainly by people. The first three, Cyrtobagous singularis Hustache, Paulinia acuminata (De Geer), and Samea multiplicalis (Guenée) (identified during the early exploration [Bennett, 1966]) have not been successful control agents. The table contains hyperlinks to collections tables of specimens based on the states, years, and drainages selected. Growth rates and density. comm.). New plants form when older plants break apart due to senescence or damage (Room, 1983). Bulletin of Entomological Research 76: 513- 517. Genetic diversity is the diversity of genes within a species. 1986. It forms dense mats over lakes and slow moving rivers and causes large economic losses and a wide range of ecological problems to native species and communities. Edwards, D. and P. A. Thomas.

Host range studies on the three unsuccessful species are summarized in Bennett (1966), Sankaran and Ramaseshiah (1973), Sands and Kassulke (1984, 1986), and Knopf and Habeck (1976). Internodes are longer, with larger, boat-shaped (slightly keeled) leaves that have rounded apices and are variable in size, but are normally between 20 mm and 50 mm wide. 2007. Croxdale, J. G. 1981.

The resulting structures resemble tiny eggbeaters. in laboratory and natural conditions. Jacono, M.M. A review of biological control of insect pests and noxious weeds in Fiji (1969- 1978). National Publication Cooperative, Quezon City, Philippines. 1982. The benefits were 53 rupees or dollars per rupee or dollar invested, or 1,673 man-hours per man-hour invested. Salvinia occurs in natural lagoons, artificial dams, swamps, drainage canals, and along margins of rivers (Forno and Harley, 1979). 217-230. Calder, A. ), the Philippines (Pablico et al., 1989), Fiji (Kamath, 1979), and New Zealand (Randall, 1996). Species within this complex are characterized by the presence of divided but apically joined "basket" hairs on the abaxial surface, which produce an "egg-beater-like" appearance (Fig. Richerson, and V. Howard. Pfingsten, C.C. The Australian Centre for Agricultural Research Technical Report 12. Reductions may range from local extinctions to maintenance of small populations of the weed along the fringes of ponds, lakes, and rivers. Coleopterists Bulletin 20: 125-127. This information was used to determine the benefits from biological control over the following 25 years. The floating fern, Salvinia molesta D. S. Mitchell, is one of the world's most invasive aquatic weeds. Insects and plant pathogens for the control of Salvinia and Pistia, pp. The New York Botanical Garden Herbarium (NY) - Vascular Plant Collection. Salvinia was first reported outside of cultivation in the United States in 1995 at a pond in southeastern South Carolina (Johnson, 1995). Mitchell, D.S. Bister, T.J., and M.W.

Pupation occurs within a silken cocoon. 1980). are lower (Thomas, 1980). Forno, I. W. and K. L. S. Harley. Mats of salvinia can grow in water bodies with conductivities ranging from 100 µS/cm to 1,400 µS/cm (Mitchell et al., 1980; Room and Gill, 1985).

Growth of Salvinia molesta as affected by water temperature and nutrition. The native range of salvinia is an area in southeastern Brazil (Forno and Harley, 1979). There are three species of Azolla – Azolla caroliniana Willdenow, Azolla mexicana C. Presl, and Azolla filiculoides Lamarck – that are native to North America (Lumpkin, 1993). Entomophaga 29: 267-273. This insect has not been a useful biological control agent (Julien and Griffiths, 1998). Using this information as a guide, Room and Julien (1995) estimated that the annual benefits gained from successful biological control of salvinia worldwide were approximately $150 million U.S. Salvinia molesta demonstrates tolerance to freezing air temperature, but cannot withstand ice formation on the water surface except when dense mats protect the underlying plants (Whiteman and Room 1991).
