Biological control of weeds has been practised for over 100 years and Australia has been a leader in this weed management technique. This book reviews biological control of weeds in Australia to 2011, covering over 90 weed species and a multitude of biological control agents and potential agents. Each chapter has been written by practising researchers and provides details of the weed, the history of its biological control, exploration for agents, potential agents studied, agents released and the outcomes of those releases. Many weeds were successfully controlled, some were not, many projects are still underway, some have just begun, however all are reported here in detail.
