DESCRIPTION

Invasive alien plants pose a major threat to agriculture and livelihoods worldwide. This book considers those impacts and the options for biological control through a case study of mikania weed, a neotropical invasive plant to many countries in the tropical, humid forest zones of Southeast Asia. This perennial vine can smother agro-forestry and natural forest ecosystems as well as many crops within home gardens and plantation production systems. The design of policy frameworks to combat invasive species is considered in depth as is the use of classical biological control against mikania weed.
