A new MIREN site in the Arid Andes in Argentina

MIREN is including a new site for assessing and monitoring plant invasions on mountain roads in the Arid Andes in Mendoza, Argentina. To support this research the Natural Private Protected Area Villavicencio is providing funding to conduct field work on three protected areas of high conservation value but currently threatened by important plant invaders for the region such as Rosa rubiginosa. Field work for this project will start in November 2016.
