CalIPC - High  California Invasive Plant Council designation: These species have severe ecological impacts on physical processes, plant and animal communities, and vegetation structure 
CalIPC - Limited  California Invasive Plant Council designation: These species are invasive but their ecological impacts are minor on a statewide level or there was not enough information to justify a higher score 
CalIPC - Moderate  California Invasive Plant Council designation: These species have substantial and apparent—but generally not severe—ecological impacts on physical processes, plant and animal communities, and vegetation structure 
CalIPC - Native  California Invasive Plant Council designation: These species are native to an area of California but are invasive in other areas 
CDFA - A  California Department of Food and Agriculture designation: A pest of known economic or environmental detriment, is not established in California, or it is at a limited distribution that allows for the possibility of eradication or successful containment 
CDFA - B  California Department of Food and Agriculture designation: An pest of known economic or environmental detriment and, if present in California, it is of limited distribution 
CDFA - C  California Department of Food and Agriculture designation: A pest of known economic or environmental detriment and, if present in California, it is usually widespread 
CDFA - D  California Department of Food and Agriculture designation: An organism known to be of little or no economic or environmental detriment, to have an extremely low likelihood of weediness, or is known to be a parasite or predator. No state enforced action 
CDFA - Q  California Department of Food and Agriculture designation: An organism or disorder suspected to be of economic or environmental detriment, but whose status is uncertain because of incomplete identification or inadequate information
