Invasive weeds are a serious threat to our agricultural, horticultural and pastoral industries as well as Australia’s natural environment.

A simple definition of a weed is a plant growing where we don’t want it to grow.  The starting point for controling weeds is to be able to recognise them.

Weeds, like all plants are grouped according to their botanical relationships, such as monocotyledons (eg. grasses, sedges and bulbous plants) and dicotyledons (broadleaf flowering plants). They are also grouped according to their lifecycle, i.e. whether they are annuals, biennials, perennials or woody plants. This book aims to aid in the identification of weeds in Australia and advise on their removal and control.
