The development of environmentally safe and cost-effective methods for controlling invasive species Sosnowsky’s hogweed (Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden.) is an urgent issue for the European part of Russia. The article presents findings of an experiment on the effect of snow cover removal from the areas occupied by H. sosnowskyi in the early spring period (the beginning of March 2018) in the vicinity of the city of Syktyvkar (Komi Republic, Russia). The snow depth reached 100 cm on the intact plots… 
Laboratory and Field Assessment of the Frost Resistance of Sosnowsky’s Hogweed
Abstract The frost resistance of Sosnowsky’s hogweed plants ( Heracleum sosnowsky Manden.) has been evaluated under laboratory and field conditions. The death of seedlings and adult plants observed
Distribution of Seeds of the Giant Hogweed (Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden.) in the Winter Period
It was found that viable seeds are preserved on the umbrellas of this alien plant in winter and measures to control Sosnowsky’s hogweed should include the destruction of dead plants with seeds until a stable snow cover is formed.
Sosnowsky’s Hogweed (Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden., Apiaceae) in Bashkortostan
Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden. grows mainly in the northern and central Cis-Urals in the Republic of Bashkortostan; in total, 22 localities are known. In the case of naturalization, the species becomes
Invasion of the Giant Hogweed and the Sosnowsky’s Hogweed as a Multidisciplinary Problem with Unknown Future—A Review
Caucasian hogweeds are plants introduced to Europe from the Caucasus area. This review concerns the two most common ones—the giant hogweed Heracleum mantegazzianum and the Sosnowsky’s hogweed


Traits of Heracleum sosnowskyi Plants in Monostand on Invaded Area
Early commencement of growth, rapid formation of a dense canopy, high efficiency of light and water use during photosynthesis, ability of young plants to survive in low light conditions, rapid recovery of above-ground plant parts after damage, and the high density of the soil seed bank are the most important traits of H. sosnowskyi plants for monostand formation in invaded areas.
Patterns of Secondary Range Formation for Heracleum sosnowskyi and H. mantegazzianum on the Territory of Russia
A map of the current distribution of Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden. on the territory of Russia was composed. It reflects the space and time dynamics of the widening of the secondary range of the weed
On certain issues of biology and ecology of Sosnowsky’s hogweed (Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden)

High seed productivity, the formation of a large seed pool, the presence of dormant plants, and rapid development during the spring period enable the rapid dispersal of Heracleum sosnowskyi in the secondary range, and the mechanism of hogweed invasion into natural communities is addressed.
Distribution of the invasive plant species Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden. in the Komi Republic (Russia)
Occurrences of the invasive plant species Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden in the Komi Republic were recorded and published in the Global Biodiversity Information Facility using the RIVR information system.
Rapid use of resources as a basis of the Heracleum sosnowskyi invasive syndrome
The functional properties of the invasive Heracleum sosnowskyi were compared with those of the native Heracleum sibiricum. The leaf and root traits, as well as those of a whole plant and of the
The spatial distribution of Sosnowsky’s hogweed (Heracleum sosnowskyi) in the valleys of big and medium rivers of the East European Plain (on materials of field studies 2008–2016)
The results of analysis on Sosnowsky’s hogweed (Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden) invasion using long-term monitoring data in the valleys of 14 large and medium rivers of the East European Plain performed
Heracleum Sosnowskyi Manden.
The toxic properties of Heracleum have been known for many years, and every summer people who had contact with the plant present at physicians of different medical specialties, posing a serious threat to the human population.
The management of giant hogweed in an Irish river catchment.
To investigate the feasibility, and logistics, of managing this hazardous plant in a discrete river catchment, a control program on the Mulkear River catchment was undertaken by the Office of Public Works.
Plant invasions in the Czech Republic: current state,introduction dynamics, invasive species and invaded habitats
The Czech Republic has a strong tradition of research on synanthropic and alien plants, both historically and recently, which results in a good knowledge of alien flora and invasion patterns, and the level of invasion in the country decreases with altitude, with neophytes responding to this factor more strongly than archaeophytes.
Seasonal changes in growth and metabolic activity of underground shoots of yarrow
It is concluded that rhizome quiescence predominantly depends on low temperatures and is not associated with the accumulation of growth inhibitors.
