The 61st annual meeting of the Western Society of Weed Science (WSWS) is to be held in Anaheim, Calif. at the Hyatt Regency Orange County Hotel on March 11-14, 2008. Attendance is welcome to anyone interested in weed science issues in the Western United States including producers and university, industry, state and federal personnel. We encourage participants from any discipline to attend the meeting and become involved in the society.

The program offers 182 weed science research presentations and posters as well as discussions on weed issues affecting Western crops, rangelands and forests, wetlands and wild lands, and educational outreach programs. Following the WSWS meeting, a special symposium will be held on the reed grasses Arundo and Phragmites — two of the most widely distributed invasive reeds in coastal riparian and wetland ecosystems in North America.
