Abstract

This research had 3 goals : 1) to analyze and document the historical and present distribution of saltcedar in the northern Great Plains; 2) to explain how saltcedar reached its northern distribution in the United States via ornamental and erosion control plantings in central Wyoming; and 3) to predict where saltcedar could invade next if it is not controlled at its advancing fronts. The AA. believe that the Wind/Bighorn River in central Wyoming was an early introduction location for saltcedar in the northern Great Plains. This was followed by rapid natural dispersal northward by water and wind through the Wind/Bighorn system and into the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers in Montana
