About this book

The ecological basis for weed management provides the keynote for this book. It describes how weed populations increase in abundance and how they spread. It introduces agricultural scientists to ecological principles, and plant ecologists to weeds. Although it focuses on agricultural weeds, it is also of interest to conservationists.

'... most timely and laudable ... as a review of weed population ecology, it is very valuable ... understandable and insightful ... Cousens and Mortimer have provided a springboard for fresh thinking.' Nicholas Jordan, Trends in Ecology and Evolution '... stimulating and of value'. R. W. Snaydon, Journal of Agricultural Science
