Gases such as ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and sulfur dioxide (SO2) have impeded visibility and impacted air health in Shenandoah National Park, one of the primary attractions of Virginia.
The rapid expansion of purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) and reed canarygrass (Phalaris arundinacea L.) into aquatic and wetland systems has reduced native plant abundance, decreased species diversity, and degraded wildlife habitats for birds and amphibians throughout North America.

Catching the Cheatgrass in the Act: Identifying the Movement of Cheatgrass in the Colorado National Monument
Bromus tectorum, otherwise known as cheatgrass, is an invasive grass from Europe that has increased its presence all over the world by out-competing native grasses due to its adaptability and lifecycle.
Methane (CH4) is a potent greenhouse gas (GHG) with a lifetime of less than 10 years and a global warming potential that is 25 times greater than carbon dioxide (CO2) over a 100-year time period.
