[64] In North America, larvae of the native painted lady butterfly (Vanessa cardui; Lepidoptera) feed on Canada thistle and other related thistles and cause extensive defoliation within localized areas, but impact varies year to year due to migration patterns. [17], Cirsium arvense occurs in nearly every upland herbaceous community within its range, and is a particular threat in prairie communities and riparian habitats. and T. Kommendahl. 1976. [28] Clones and individual stems can be imperfectly dioecious; Hodgson (1964)[25] found that male and female flowers developed on separate stems grown from a single clone. Proceedings of the Northeastern Weed Science Society 39:98. Restoration and Management Notes 3:87. Their description and control. Hodgson, J.M. [96], Thistle density decreased >80% after single applications, applied late May through late June. 44 p. Van Bruggan, T. 1976. 1994. The Chrysomelid beetle Altica carduorum weakens Canada thistle by defoliating it and feeding on its flower heads. Canadian Journal of Plant Science 56:211-214. Therefore it is often necessary to implement several control techniques, and to continuously monitor their impacts. Idaho perennial weeds. 1979. Response of Canada thistle to herbicides. Lewis. McIntyre. [61] The leaf spot disease Septoria cirsii is host specific to Cirsium arvense, and causes severe damage to Cirsium arvense plants in the field, inhibiting seed germination and root elongation, and causing leaf chlorosis and necrosis. 1983. Areas treated with less aggressive techniques, such as prescribed fire, spot-applied herbicides, biocontrol agents, or infrequent mowing, usually retain most of the native community. (1754) Cirsium acaule Scop. The weevil Larinus planus is a seed head feeder but it has had little impact on Canada thistle and attacks native thistles. (leaves gray-tomentose below); var. The susceptibility of Canada thistle (. arvense variety Cirsium arvense var. Genus Cirsium Mill. [92] Thistle density was reduced 2-5 years after spring application of chlorsulfuron[52], Picloram is a restricted use herbicide that may persist for up to 3 years in the soil and is not registered for use in California. variety Cirsium arvense var.

California thistle rust. It it also different from other native North American species given its large roots and multiple small flower heads on a branched stem, Its underground structure consists of four types, 1) long, thick, horizontal roots, 2) long, thick, vertical roots, 3) short, fine shoots, and 4) vertical, underground stems. Four varieties are recognized: var. Common Name: Canada thistle, Canadian thistle Family Name: Asteraceae - Aster family Native Range: temperate regions of Eurasia NJ Status: Widespread and highly threatening to native communities. Vaxtskyddsnotiser 58(3):79-84. [5][18][17], In 1975, Canada thistle's range was an estimated 9,770,000 km2 in North America, extending over an area 2090 km north to south, and 4700 km east to west. 1994). Shoot density and root growth are closely correlated: areas with highest shoot density also have the highest underlying root biomass and highest density of adventitious root buds, and also more deep roots. Berner, D. K., et al. [93] Leaving large clods (5.3 cm diameter) minimizes seed germination and leaving small clods (1.5 cm diameter) can stimulate germination of seedling which can be killed by retilling or treating with herbicide. Uses of plants by the Chippewa Indians. In Washington state, overwintering Canada thistle roots develop new underground roots and shoots in January and begin to elongate in February. Roitberg. Chlorsulfuron is a post-emergent herbicide that primarily suppresses regrowth of Canada thistle, and secondarily reduces the number of root buds and plant weight. In Canada, a single application of glyphosate at 0.45 kg/ha reduced thistle shoot density by >75% at two sites, while 1.8 kg/ha was required to achieve the same level of control at a third site (Darwent et al. A review of the impact and control of creeping thistle (. Cirsium … Periodicity of seedling emergence and achene survival in some species of Carduus, Cirsium and Onopordum. Environmental and herbicide effects on Canada thistle ecotypes (. species Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop. [74], Orellia ruficauda is a small fly that deposits its eggs in Cirsium arvense flower heads. Hodgson, J.M. [63] Larvae of the intentionally introduced biocontrol weevil Ceutorhynchus litura feed on stems of Canada thistle. The most extensive root growth occurs on moist clay but growth is reduced on excessively wet soils, and on droughty soils including sand, gravel, and hard-pans. Hope, A. A comparative life-history study of. The winterhardiness of weeds. [41] In 2013, in four countries in three continents, epidemics of systemic disease caused by this rust fungus could be routinely and easily established. phylum Anthophyta; õistaimed (1259092) ... Cirsium arvense var. integrifolium produced seedlings of all four varieties. Every plant species has a unique floral fragrance composition. If Canada thistle is firmly established in a natural area, efforts should be made to eradicate, or at least to contain, the plant rather than simply monitor its spread. Genus Cirsium may be biennials or perennials with spiny leaves and typical thistle-type flower-heads Details Creeping thistle is a perennial reaching 1m in height. M.S. Two pathogens have also been considered for use against Canada thistle. Most root buds are produced in the center of a patch (up to 800/m2) near the soil surface (root bud density decreases with depth; [39]). Fall treatment in two consecutive years decreased shoot density 94% the following fall, and root weight 77%. Saidak, W.J. However, Cirsium arvense undergoes several growth stages during the growing season and during certain stages root carbohydrates are depleted. 1981. Management that delays Cirsium arvense maturation, such as mowing or burning, may help synchronize the susceptible thistle growth stage to the biocontrol agent life cycle.[61]. Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop. Cutting or applying herbicide to shoots after a very severe winter may add sufficient stress to kill plants. 15 p. Stachion, W.J. Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop. and B.D. Messersmith. (leaves gray-tomentose below); var. 1994. 1995. and B.D. Proceedings. 1986. Hartzler. Species. Cirsium celakovskianum Knaf; Cirsium dioicum Cass. Wyse. Canada thistle roots also develop cold-tolerance with increased exposure to the cold. The northern limit of the zone of highest density in Canada corresponds with the -18°C (0°F) mean January isotherm, whereas the southern limit of the species is probably controlled by high summer temperatures and short-day length. [12], American Indians quickly became familiar with Cirsium arvense and purportedly used an infusion of its roots for mouth diseases (Rousseay and Raymond 1945 [cited in Moore and Frankton 1974]). Wyse and J.M. Picloram accumulates in shoot apices (Sharma and Vanden Born 1973 cited in Donald 1990)[93] and is applied at flower bud stage or to fall regrowth. Distribution and reproduction of Canada thistle in Iowa. Cirsium arvense produces numerous small flowers clustered in heads that are typically 1-1.5 cm in diameter and 1.3-1.5 cm tall. Control of Canada thistle (, Carlson, S.J. Influence of glyphosate concentration on glyphosate absorption and translocation in Canada thistle (, Devine, M.D. Journal of Agricultural Research 72:201-210. 1995. Combining biocontrol and prescribed fire or mowing may help control Canada thistle and promote restoration, but this is still in the experimental stage. Child, Ed.'s. Cirsium arvense management programs should be designed to kill established clones since the species spreads primarily by vegetative expansion of the root system. Control techniques for natural areas are constrained by the need to minimize damage to native species. Journal of Agriculture 12:300-302. Cirsium arvense grows on all but waterlogged, poorly aerated soils, including clay, clay loam, silt loam, sandy loam, sandy clay, sand dunes, gravel, limestone, and chalk, but not peat (Korsmo 1930). Proceedings Western Weed Science Society 32:61. Acta Oecologica/ Oecologia Plantarum 4(18):61-69. Hetzer, W.A. It has been suggested that at least three biocontrol organisms may be needed for effective Canada thistle control. [10], Dicamba has limited effectiveness on Cirsium arvense, and it persists for long periods in the soil making it unacceptable for use in most natural areas. Wein. Hodgson, and L.C. Mowing temporarily reduces above-ground biomass, but does not kill Cirsium arvense unless repeated at 7-28 day intervals for up to 4 years. p 249-253 in James, L.F., J.O. [50] A minimum of 3 days between glyphosate and tilling is needed for glyphosate to damage root system [87]; waiting longer may further increase thistle mortality. Root fragments from a single young plant can produce over 900 shoots when the roots are cut into 10 cm fragments [3], as typically occurs with discing. Tomarek, G.W. Smother crops are used in integrated pest management systems for Canada thistle on agricultural lands (Hodgson 1968)[7] but the smother crops known to be effective are themselves invasive. 1946. Influence of bovine digestive tract on germination of diaspores of selected plant species. Differences can be seen in their R-protein mediated defenses, sensitivities to abiotic stresses and developmental timing. Tilling affects only the upper part of the root system and in some cases as little as a quarter of Canada thistles roots are in the top 20 cm of soil reached by normal tillage while the majority of roots are 20-40 cm deep and some roots reach to 1.8 m deep. Demographic and biomass production consequences of inundative treatment of, Ang, B.N., L.T. Sexual dimorphism in, Lalonde, R.G. [71] Unfortunately, Ceutorhynchus litura larvae mine the parenchyma tissue of the stem pith and do not damage vascular bundles, so water translocation is not affected. [5] Most patches spread at the rate of 1-2 m/year (Amor and Harris 1975). [34] Conditions change frequently for seeds planted at a shallow depth, or in cultivated soil, hence, most seed in farm fields germinates within the first year and the remainder rapidly loses viability. Manure must be spread 2 m thick and cover an area 5-6 m in diameter Cirsium arvense, and plants that emerge at the mulch perimeter must be removed. In Canada thistle Symposium, Proceedings N.C. Weed Control Conference 36:179-180. Repeated cutting at the same growth stage over several years may "wear down" the plant. Growth hormones and the creeping thistle rust. Westview Press. 45 pp. With the exception of hermaphrodites, Cirsium arvense flowers are obligate outcrossers. Multiple stresses by insect and plant competition on growth and productivity of Canada thistle (insect competition. vestitum Wimm. Lym, R.G. Hover flies are also commonly seen pollinating the flower heads of this plant. [26] Creeping thistle foliage is used as a food by over 20 species of Lepidoptera, including the painted lady butterfly and the engrailed moth, and several species of aphids. [85] The majority of damage occurs after 3 days, but glyphosate continues to act on sensitive tissues for up to 45 days. 1980. 1988. Bostock S.J. [6] It is also commonly known as Canada thistle and field thistle. Effect of moisture stress on Canada thistle (. [42], A low glyphosate concentration (2.5%) was more effective than higher concentrations (5%, 10% and 30%) reducing shoot growth and regrowth 76% at the lower rate and having no effect at the higher rates. Farmers' Bulletin 545. Seed production and viability is higher under full sun than low light. stated that boom spray application of 2,4-D for Canada thistle control in Kilen Woods State Park, Minnesota was ineffective because it set back the succession of natural communities, actually opening areas for thistle invasion. undulatum.[97][98][99]. C. arvense is shade intolerant and can tolerate soils with up to 2% salt content. Canada thistle control with combinations of growth regulators and glyphosate or triclopyr. Species diversity in an "undisturbed" Colorado grassland was inversely proportional to the relative frequency of Canada thistle. Every 8-11 years, populations explode and the butterflies migrate north where they can temporarily be very effective biocontrol agents. species Cirsium creticum (Lam.) The impact of clopyralid increased with increased application rate, and application of 840 g/ha had the greatest impact. Smother crops may be grown to choke and shade out undesirable species. Glyphosate effects on Canada thistle (. Sprankle, O., W.F. [39], Shoot density is positively correlated with rainfall during the previous growing season; density increased following a year of above-normal precipitation, and decreased the year following a growing season drought. [11], Cirsium arvense is a C3 carbon fixation plant. Zimdahl. Some effects of different intensities of grazing on mixed prairies near Hays, Kansas. Hunter, J.H. [44] It is suspected that deep roots (>30 cm below the soil surface) are more susceptible to freezing than shallow roots [44], because they do not develop cold-tolerance. Welton, F.A., V.H. Salt was one of the earliest chemicals used to kill Cirsium arvense. 1995. Subordinate taxa. Other herbicides can have similar impacts on native vegetation. Weed Science 18:253-255. Seed germinates best at temperatures of 25-30°C [22][17], but can germinate at lower temperatures in high light conditions. 1994. John M. Randall, 1997. Three consecutive fall applications did not reduce Cirsium arvense "sufficiently" (Donald 1993). Kok, G.I. In recent years C. palustre (European swamp thistle) has joined their ranks. [4] The Chippewa considered it to be "tonic, diuretic and astringent". 12 p. Forsyth, S.F. An ecological study of the prairie and pasture lands in Douglas & Franklin Counties, Kansas. [82] Growing season fires reduced thistle density but harmed native species. [10] Glyphosate impact was slightly reduced under severe drought conditions. [26] Seed production is much higher with insect pollination (40-85 seeds/head) than wind pollination (0.2-0.8 seeds/head) (Derscheid and Schultz 1960). Hayden, A. Growing forages such as alfalfa can help control the species as a weed by frequently cutting the alfalfa to add nutrients to the soil, the weeds also get cut, and have a harder time re-establishing themselves, which reduces the shoot density. [63] At any one site in its native range, however, an average of 4.5 insect species attack Cirsium arvense but in general they cause little damage, as their densities are usually low and most species consume little plant material. Ottawa, Ontario. Viral infection spreads rapidly in large painted lady butterfly populations, however, and within a year or two the butterfly populations drop again.[71]. Hsiao, and G.I. ... Find Cirsium arvense in Victorian Biodiversity Atlas Bioregion Occurrence status and R.L. Subject: Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop. [30] Although Cirsium arvense may help maintain diversity of pollinating insects in this way [30] it negatively impacts native plant communities and may thus have an negative impact on overall insect diversity as well. Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG) of the IUCN Species Survival Commission, Oregon Department of Agriculture Plant Programs, Noxious Weed Control, Colorado Department of Agriculture, Conservation Services Division, Plant Conservation Alliance's Alien Plant Working Group, Washington State Noxious Weed Control Board, University of California, Jepson Flora Project, Biological Control of Invasive Plants in the Eastern United States, http://wiki.bugwood.org/index.php?title=Cirsium_arvense&oldid=49916, Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health at the University of Georgia. An annotated list of insects associated with Canada thistle (. [90] At high concentrations glyphosate kills leaves so quickly that they are unable to translocate the herbicide to the roots before they die. 58(2): 178-187. Saville. 1979. Phylum: Magnoliophyta Class: Magnoliopsida: Subclass: Asteridae Order: Asterales: Family: Asteraceae: Genus: Cirsium Subject: Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop. Thus, several growth stages may be simultaneously present. Eradicating Canada thistle. Prevention of seed production is a secondary consideration since spread by seeds is relatively rare. [5] Shoots emerge March - May when mean weekly temperatures reach 5o C. Rosette formation follows, with a period of active vertical growth (about 3 cm/day) in mid-to-late June. Effect of bud vs rosette growth stage on translocation of 14C-Glyphosate in Canada thistle (, Boerboom, C.M. The plant's vigor decreases with drought conditions [11], especially in autumn [54] although in Sweden, Cirsium arvense's long root system allows it to tolerate dry summers better than annual crops. phylum Tracheophyta class Magnoliopsida order Asterales family Asteraceae genus Cirsium species Cirsium arvense variety Cirsium arvense var. [41], Root growth and survival are affected by environmental factors, especially soil moisture, soil temperature, and substrate. and D.C. Sands. P-anisaldehyde is found in less than 1%, yet it attracts pollinators such as honey bees. [43] Cirsium arvense roots are cold-sensitive, injured when directly exposed to cold temperatures for 8 hours at -2°C, and dying after 8 hrs at -6°C. [10], The blooming period is longer in northern locales than in more southerly areas; In Canada flowering begins mid-June to early July and continues into September [1], while in Idaho and Montana flowering begins early July and continues into August.[7][25]. Canada thistle and its eradication. Four varieties are recognized: var. Annals of Botany (London) 31:195-211. Cirsium arvense response to fire varies from positive to negative, depending on season of burn, soil moisture, and location. Canadian Journal of Plant Science 69:1199-1206. 1981. [14] The plant can bloom from seed in a year then subsequently the seeds produced can emerge in the following year.[2]. [68] The organisms tested for biological control were not simultaneously tested for tolerance to herbicides [69] but it appears that 2,4-D can be applied at low rates in conjunction with the rust Puccinia punctiformis to achieve better control than either treatment alone. [15], GIven its adaptive nature, Cirsium arvense is one of the worst invasive weeds worldwide. [12] MCPA and clopyralid are approved in some regions. It differs from other species in the same genus given its dioecious flowers. and it has been treated as several species, numerous varieties, or as a single highly polymorphic species. 1935. In Canada, Cirsium arvense is frequent in prairie marsh [20] and sedge meadow. Cirsium ochrolepideum Juz. Noxious range weeds. [29], Seeds (achenes) range in size from 2.5-3.2 mm long, and average 1 mm in diameter. [5][1][7][22] It grows best on mesic soils: in a transplant experiment, Hogenbirk and Wein (1991)[21] determined that Cirsium arvense cover increased 5- to 13-fold when sods were moved from a wetland to a mesic location. [61][58] While flies avoid laying eggs in male flowerheads and preferentially select female flower heads, the developing larvae do not eat enough seeds in a flowerhead to affect either the individual seed head or the population. Oregon State University. It is unclear if the government continues to use this weevil to control Canada thistles or not. Fall application of Clopyralid delayed shoot emergence by two weeks, and reduced shoot density the following summer (Donald 1993). Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide that can be used when the plant has grown a few inches tall, where the herbicide can be absorbed by the leaf surfaces. Cirsium arvense is a plant native to southeastern Europe and eastern portions of the Mediterranean area and has been introduced in North America (Morishita in Sheley and Petroff 1999). Marriage, P.B.
