Weeds continue to impact biodiversity, agriculture, and public spaces, posing challenges to productivity and land use. The 23rd AWC provides a platform to unite, share ideas, and explore effective weed management strategies. This significant national event will be staged at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Biological invasions are a major threat to Australia. Information on alien flora in Australia is collated independently by different jurisdictions, which has led to inconsistencies at the national level, hampering efficient management. The Alien Flora of Australia (AFA) is an Australian first: a nationally unified dataset that harmonises different information sources.
Endorsed by the National Biosecurity Committee in July 2011, this resource establishes a need to prioritise pest species or targets for control. The document outlines four agreed national categories for invasive species taxa, together with ‘selection criteria’ used to assign candidate taxa to these categories.
Published by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences, this resource considers the decision support tools required to assist policy makers in assessing whether biocontrol is an appropriate option for weed control.
Thirty-two Weeds of National Significance (known as WONS) have been identified based on their invasiveness, potential for spread and environmental, social and economic impacts. View their profiles.
