The Alaska Center for Conservation Science (ACCS) maintains the Alaska Exotic Plants Information Clearinghouse (AKEPIC) which is a database and mapping application that provides information about non-native plant species in Alaska and neighboring Canadian Territories. ACCS tracks all non-native plants known to occur in Alaska. In addition, ACCS has compiled biographies for over half of the 350 non-native plant species that are known or likely to occur in Alaska.

ACCS invites participation and submission of observations. Field observation reporting forms are availabe at the AKEPIC website.
