Southwest Exotic Plant Information Clearinghouse (SWEPIC)
Southwest Exotic Mapping Program
The Southwest Exotic Mapping Program (SWEMP) was a USGS Southwest Biological Sciences Center program that coordinated the semi-annual compilation of a regional database of non-native invasive plant distributions for Arizona and adjacent areas of the southwest. The program existed from the late 1990's until 2007 and was supported by the funding and collaboration of federal, state, tribal, and local funders and collaborators.
