Research Institution
Nutria (Myocastor coypus) has been listed by the Invasive Species Specialist Group as being one of the top 100 worst invasive species in the world. Nutria herbivory in Louisiana and in other areas has been documented on bald cypress, Sagittaria latifolia and S. platyphylla, Spartina patens and S. alterniflora, and many other species of marsh vegetation. As a whole, vegetative biomass is decreasing and plant species composition is changing due to nutria herbivory. Since nutria are a major problem in Louisiana and control is warranted, the purpose of this phase I proposal is to develop a bait for the control of nutria
