Environmental Weeds of the Wet Tropics Bioregion: Risk Assessment and Priority Ranking

Research Report
Garry Werren

Rainforest CRC scientists undertook an examination of alien plant species invasions of the Wet Tropics bioregion as part of a consultancy for the Wet Tropics Management Authority. The work included an inventory of existing weeds, prioritisation of potential environmental threats, categorisation into management categories and appropriate management actions. This report presents a review of risk assessment systems, a list of 504 species of alien plants, a preliminary ranking of 57 weed species and recommendations for further research.
