Description


This book brings together a wide range of invasive plant specialists from the Asia-Pacific region who share their experience in addressing the problem and delivering solutions. Mikania micrantha is used as a case study in the book as it exemplifies many of the issues that need to be addressed.

The book emphasizes the social and economic implications of plant invasion, and discusses direct impacts on livelihoods and biodiversity. It explains how various approaches to management including traditional ecological knowledge and classical biological control can be keys to the delivery of sustainable solutions, focusing on experiences in India, Nepal, Papua New Guinea and China. The use of policy frameworks in biological control and other management measures are also described.
