• Global Compendium of Weeds (hear.org)

    This website is a collaborative venture between AgWest (data & weed expertise) and the Hawaiian Ecosystems at Risk project (HEAR) (database consultation & website management).

    The Global Compendium of Weeds is a list of plant species (over 28,000 names) that have been cited in specific references (approximately 1,000) as weeds. An expert has assessed the status of the weed based on its context in each document. Sometimes additional information – such as native range, whether the plan has reported medical/herbal uses, etc – is included when available.

  • The state of weeds data collection in Australia

    National coordination of weeds data is a priority for all levels of government in Australia and is established in national policy documents such as the Australian Weeds Strategy (AWS) 2017–2027, the Intergovernmental Agreement on Biosecurity (IGAB), and the national strategies for Weeds of National Significance (WoNS). Collaboration through data sharing can assist weed managers to more effectively allocate resources, assess effectiveness of investments, and improve management outcomes.
    The objective of the national weeds data collection survey was to understand the status of weeds data collection and sharing between stakeholders, and identify opportunities for data coordination at a national level.

  • Weed Futures: Determining Current and Future Weed Threats in Australia

    This website is a decision-support tool that provides users with the ability to interrogate individual profiles for over 700 non-native naturalised and invasive plant species within Australia and assess weed threats for regions of interest under current and predicted future climates.

    The integration of modelling, spatial analysis and species’ trait information provides a comprehensive assessment and information source for these plant species under both current and future climates.

  • NSW WeedsWise website

    NSW WeedWise contains over 300 weed profiles, describing their profile, control (including registered herbicide options) and biosecurity duty (under the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015). This information is tailored to NSW only.
