About this book

Weeds are recognised worldwide as undesirable economic pests; however, the value of any plant is unquestionably determined by the perception of the viewer. This book looks at weeds from an ecological viewpoint, emphasising the way in which one species interacts with others. Weeds are successful plants, but on their own terms.
