This chapter describes some of the methods that have been used to map tamarisk infestations and predict distribution and abundance in North America, including field surveys, online databases, remote sensing, and spatial models. These methods have had varying degrees of success, and some may have better applications under specific site conditions or at specific geographic locations. Field surveys are still the most common means of mapping tamarisk distributions for land managers, providing a critical foundation for some of the new methods and techniques being used to predict tamarisk distribution. The types of tamarisk data collected from the field can range from a location coordinate taken from a global positioning system (GPS) to a mapped polygon of a stand with detailed site descriptions.

Keywords:   tamarisk, infestations, distribution, abundance, North America, field surveys, online databases, remote sensing, spatial models
