About this book

Language: English

Mikania micrantha is an alien invasive weed which causes serious havoc to natural forests and plantations. It is also a serious threat to agricultural production systems. Bio-control methods are not successful, though pathogens were recorded from the plant. Though herbicide is effective to control the weed, it is not environmentally friendly. Biological control appears to be the best option to control Mikania. This publication is useful to forest managers to get an insight into the problem, and to scientists for further investigations.
