In order to investigate whether there were differences in attitudes and perceptions within the University of California regarding the impact of introduced ornamental plants, we conducted a survey of academics with assignments in natural resource programs or ornamental horticulture. In general, the ornamental horticulture academics did not view the problem of invasive species as severely as the natural resource academics, but the both groups recognize that non-native landscape ornamentals now occur and can affect California's wildlands. These data can be used to provide training to academics on this issue and help facilitate discussion between the different groups.
