Dr. James McConnell, left, and Dr. Rachel Jolley from the University of Guam’s Guam Plant Extinction Prevention Program highlight the danger of Antigonon leptopus, also known as cadena de amor, to native plant life. Characterized by bright pink or white flowers, Antigonon leptopus vines spread aggressively until they completely enshroud surrounding plant life. The vines also serve as food and shelter for invasive ungulates. Marine Corps Base Camp Blaz and the UoG are collaborating to restore and enhance 1,000 acres of Guam’s forests at enhancement sites as part of our commitment to a responsible military buildup process.
