Impatiens glandulifera – tasks’ description

Task 1. Inventory of invasive species, with particular emphasis on adenocarcinoma. It will be run along the Czarna Hańcza River from its sources to Sobolewo and around Lake Hańcza, through which the river flows. At the same time, inventory of other invasive species of alien plants will be conducted in this area: lobed spines, species from the genus, species, five-leaf vines and Sosnowski borsch. All plant species included in the project are associated with wetland ecosystems, which are one of the most susceptible ecosystems, easily subject to disturbances. loss of biodiversity (displacement, competition). The inventory will be carried out on a 117 km section with two rivers, using GPS receivers. The locations of invasive plants, the area they occupy, and the basic characteristics of their populations will be indicated on the map.

Task 2. Testing methods for controlling adenocarcinoma. In order to determine the most effective method for removing impatiens from the three main habitats most frequently encountered (meadows and pastures, agricultural wastes, wetlands), it is planned to create experimental plots that will be used to remove impatiens in a variety of ways, seeds deposited in the soil. The most effective method will be applied in future measures to reduce the population of this species.

Task 3. Investigation of pathways of propagation of adenocarcinoma. Research will be conducted to determine the intensity and efficiency of seed transport in water and land. The results of these studies will provide data to develop a strategy for combating the species.

Task 4. Analysis of the availability of seeds and seedlings of invasive plant species of foreign origin. For the area of ​​the province. The analysis of availability of seeds and invasive plant species will be carried out. A representative number of plants will be selected to verify the availability of these plants. Data collection will take place by telephone or directly. An analysis of the availability of threatening plants in the online sales network will also be made. The data obtained will be used to develop a report showing the scale of the phenomenon and indicate ways to limit the availability of invasive plant species.

Task 5. Promotion and information. Parallel to the remaining tasks, an information and education campaign will be conducted mainly for the local community: nature protection services, farmers, farmers (workshops) and other people interested in the problem of invasive species (symposium). The overriding objective of the action is to deepen public awareness of the dangers posed by the introduction of alien species into the natural environment.
