Weeds are generally described as a “plant out of place.”
But they can be so much more insidious!
Weeds destroy natural areas, change ecosystem process, displace native plants and remove important food and shelter plants for many animals. They can also create harbour for ferals and introduced pests.
Weeds can also contribute to a changed fire regime that can be hotter and more frequent, placing even further pressure on the survival of native flora and fauna.
This site contains lots of useful identification and control information for many Kimberley weeds.
Feel free to comment and ask question about any of the postings.
Likewise; please upload any photos you have of “plants behaving badly”. It is very useful to see how weeds are behaving throughout the Kimberley and enables people to see how much of a problem weeds really can be!
