|quote||... Clinton signed Executive Order 13112, creating the National Invasive Species Council "to prevent the introduction of invasive species and provide for their control and to minimize the economic, ecological, and human health impacts that invasive species cause."

Jackson, a product-development manager and weed scientist for Monsanto who had helped to develop Roundup formulations specifically for "habitat-restoration markets" -- that is, for eradicating invasives.|
