IAPP Help and FAQs
Adding a Plant Species to the IAPP Plant ListCurrently IAPP has 205 plants on its drop-down list, many of which have been added at the request of our users. To streamline these requests, and keep the process as easy and fair as possible, a protocol for adding new species to the IAPP plant list was created in 2009. This simple protocol can be downloaded here and the Data Manager of any IAPP agency may submit a plant addition request to the IAPP administrator at IAPP.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adding a Containment Line to IAPP Data Entry and Map DisplayAn invasive plant species can become so well established over a large area that it is no longer practical to treat it in that area, and treatment efforts become focused on preventing the plant from expanding into surrounding areas. This involves the establishment of a 'containment line'; outside the containment area the species will be treated aggressively, whereas treatments within the line will be performed as resources allow.
Currently, 4 containment lines are established in IAPP, for Blueweed, Common tansy, Field scabious and Marsh plume thistle. The protocol for having containment lines approved for additional species can be downloaded here.
IAPP TrainingWe have conducted hands-on IAPP training sessions around the province since the inception of IAPP in 2005. For details on hosting such a session, please visit our IAPP Training page.
