The introduced flora of Australia and its weed status
"This publication is the outcome of a Cooperative Research Centre for Australian Weed Management project, and is aimed at a large range of users from Commonwealth, state and local government officers, to researchers, horticulturists, nursery owners, farmers, landscapers, consultants, groups of volunteers looking after remnant bushland to home gardeners. Everyone who uses plants needs to be aware of the weed potential of those plants and to be able to make informed decisions about which ones to use in their operations. I hope to see a time, and not that far away, where the use of weedy plant species will no longer be accepted in public and private plantings in Australia. This publication is offered to help people to make responsible decisions in the types of plants they use in the future."
