Pests and weeds

Exotic species associated with lantana

As well as collecting information on the native biodiversity at risk from lantana, a list of exotic species (weeds and pest animals) that are associated with lantana was also compiled during the workshops. Not all the weed species were recorded during this process, only those that the participants thought would be equally or more difficult to control or could form a barrier to the recovery of native species following the control of lantana. This is important given that weed substitution can occur if a single weed is targeted for control. The list of exotic species is available for download.
