'Streamlining Search And Destroy': Development Of A Robust Prioritisation Framework For Weed Eradication Using Hawkweed Species

Grant number: LP100100441 | Funding period: 2010 - 2013

Completed

Abstract

Introduced species are one of the greatest threats to our biodiversity and agriculture, as evidenced by the ARC’s National Research Priority: Safeguarding Australia. This project will advance Australia’s ability to protect itself from invaders by developing tools that guide cost-effective detection and response. Our project will have a direct effect on the planning and management of Hawkweed control in Victoria and New South Wales. The framework delivered will have direct application to numerous other weeds (and relevance to other pests and diseases) within and beyond Australia.
