South Africa has one of the most diverse and beautiful floral kingdoms on earth. Unfortunately, it is has also become one of the most polluted and threatened by exotic species. This edition of problem plants of South Africa is a guide for anyone interested in knowing how to recognise and control troublesome plants. The title covers more than 300 species of problem plants in detail, with descriptive text and more than 550 full-colour photographs for easy identification. The text highlights the origin and environmental impact of each species as well as methods of controlling the plant. Up-to-date distribution maps show the range of each of these invasive plants, while a range of icons offers an easy overview of a plant's pest status and how they are covered by the latest government regulations and herbicide registrations. Introductory chapters explain various aspects of undesirable vegetation, such as bush encroachment, veld degradation and chemical and biological control techniques. An innovative identification key will assist even the total 'non-botanist' in identifying a particular species.
