This species has been recorded in New South Wales, Australia (NSW DPI 2012), in the Bahamas (GISD 2006), Bangladesh, Benin (de Groot et al. This rapid rate of urban growth is being driven by limited employment opportunities in rural areas, land Slow flowing fresh water bodies located in the Great Lakes basin may provide suitable habitats for this species. Some efforts to control the weed (using manual removal and machine-based harvesting) have been applied, though the magnitude and intensity of control activities have not slowed down the expansion of … Distribution Map Reproduction E. crassipes reproduces by both vegetative and sexual methods. Ajuono et al. Under varying nutrient conditions, the grasshopper Cornops aquaticum, has also proven to be effective at reducing E. crassipes growth. MacIsaac, H.J., A.P. Cumulative. Hill, T.D.

Eichhornia crassipes is somewhat likely to be able to overwinter in the Great Lakes basin as rooted plants, which are more resistant to freezing temperatures than free floating mats (Owens and Madsen 1995). It is being provided to meet the need for timely best science. This species has reduced water availability in Lake Victoria Basin, which led to social conflicts over the lack of clean water (Mailu 2001). ARS.
