Abstract The purpose of the Invasive Plant Program (IPP) is to protect Yosemite National Parks natural and cultural resources from displacement by non-native invasive plants. Yosemites large size, just over three quarters of a million acres, can make surveying for and treating invasive plants logistically difficult. This is especially true in remote wilderness. The threat from invasive species is growing and new invasive plant species and populations are found and treated each year. Limited operational resources for invasive plant control make it critical that treatments are efficient and effective and guided by a strategically sound plan.
