Chrysomelidae Biology, Vol. The lists of Colorado's Noxious Weeds are located in the below table. Pemberton (1995) recommended that only narrow specialists with potential host ranges at or below the level of the subgenus Esula should be employed to avoid damage to native North American Euphorbia species. In its native range leafy spurge is typically just a scattered plant in the ecosystem. In Watson, A.K. At present, it is unclear whether any of these agents have established on leafy spurge in New Hampshire. Leafy spurge originated in Eurasia and was introduced into the United States in the early 1800s.

Leafy spurge, Euphorbia esula L., is an invasive, deep-rooted perennial herb that is native to Eurasia (Watson, 1985; Pemberton, 1995). Informal human transport of leafy spurge biological control agents from Canada to the United States and vice-versa has probably resulted in additional releases (R. Hansen, pers. University of California. The species has a relatively broad ecological amplitude and has been recorded from xeric to mesic sandy loam sites in Eurasia (Müller, 1949; Maw, 1981; Fornasari, 1996; Gassmann et al., 1996). Watson, A. K. 1985. Leafy spurge invades prairies, pastures, and other open areas. comm.). Western United States classical biological control agents of weeds, Data Base,     Oregon Department of Agriculture, Salem, Oregon. Leafy spurge forms dense stands over times and a large plant can produce up to 130,000 seeds. Leafy Spurge, also known as wolf’s milk, faitours-grass, and tithymal (Scientific name: Euphorbia esula L. of the family Family: Euphorbiaceae – Spurge family), originated in Eurasia and was introduced into the United States in the early 1800s. Leafy spurge is not a single species but an aggregation of closely related, perhaps hybridized taxa. This blue-black flea beetle species is native to central and eastern Europe (Germany, Austria, Poland), the lower Danube region, parts of Russia, central Asia, and eastern Siberia (Gassmann, 1984). Leitch, J. Leafy spurge, Euphorbia esula L., is an invasive, deep-rooted perennial herb that is native to Eurasia. ), and are significantly reducing the weed at some sites in Michigan (J. Winklar, pers. But more recently, populations of the Aphthona species have reached adequate levels for redistribution in New York (P. Wrege, pers. Flea beetles in the genus Aphthona have been the most successful biocontrol agents released against leafy spurge in North America. 1996. [  Contents  ]   Lastly, integrated weed management strategies need to be developed and implemented on a grander scale to be able to achieve consistent and sustainable management of leafy spurge in North America in the future. Control of leafy spurge by chemical means also raises many health and environmental concerns. Additional surveys for spurge natural enemies, conducted in China from 1987 to the early 1990s, identified additional promising agents, including several Aphthona species that are still under study (Pemberton and Wang, 1989; Fornasari and Pemberton, 1993). Pemberton, R. W. 1985. (ed.). All of the established flea beetle species released against leafy spurge in the United States are univoltine, with some of the species showing phenological differences in adult emergence during the course of the growing season (Hansen, 1994). In Tutin, T. G. Economic Impact of Leafy Spurge on North     Dakota Wildland. Plant taxa for listing as endangered and threatened species; notice     of review. The most problematic type appears to be E. x pseudovirgata, which is a hybrid of E. esula sensu stricto and E. waldsteinii (=E. However, Maw (1981) reported that it preferred moist sites. If a plant name does not have a link this is because a plant plan or assessment has not been Leafy spurge is commonly found in grassland and rangeland habitats, but is also capable of invading forests and riparian areas, displacing native vegetation. In contrast, rates of predation on pupae, measured using different levels of exclusion, are high and are most likely due to field mice (Peromyscus spp.) Such reductions in native plant diversity also may have a negative impact on wildlife populations (Wallace et al., 1992; Trammell and Butler, 1995). flea beetles for leafy spurge spurge control, p. 64. Aphthona species overwinter as larvae, and generally pupate within the spurge roots in late spring to early summer (Rees et al., 1996). 26-41. Flora of Japan. 1983. 1987. Proceedings of the Leafy Spurge Symposium, Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. 1994. This genetic variability, combined with other traits, including the plant‘s possession of both sexual and asexual reproduction, a deep underground root system, an ability to infest xeric, mesic, and even hydric sites across a wide range of soil types (Nowierski and Zeng, 1994; Nowierski et al., 1996; Nowierski et al., 2002), along with the existence of many native spurge species (Euphorbiaceae) in North America (Pemberton, 1985), makes both conventional management and classical biological control of this weed complex and potentially difficult (Shulz-Schaeffer and Gerhardt, 1987).

They are blue-green in colour, but in the late summer they turn yellow or orange-red. 1986. Cooperative Extension Service Circular 309: 1-16. Risks to native plant species as a result of biological control of leafy spurge were analyzed by Pemberton (1985). Leafy spurge has a very extensive root system, most of which is in the top foot of soil, but the vertical roots may grow to depths of 15 feet or more. Journal of Wildlife Management 59: 808-816. The showy yellow-green inflorescences produce an average of 140 seeds per stem. comm.) Leafy spurge reproduces from seed and vegetative root buds. Agricultural Economics Report No. (ed.).
