Eradication of invasive alien plants on Lord Howe Island, NSW using three Asparagus species (Asparagus asparagoides (L.) Druce, A. plumosus Baker and A. aethiopicus L.) as a case study



Eradication of invasive alien plants on Lord Howe Island, NSW using three Asparagus species (Asparagus asparagoides (L.) Druce, A. plumosus Baker and A. aethiopicus L.) as a case study



Plant Protection Quarterly 21(3): 117-121



This paper outlines the current management approach targeting eradication of invasive alien plants on Lord Howe Island (New South Wales, Australia), using 3 Asparagus species (A. aethiopicus, A. asparagoides and A. plumosus as a case study. The management is based on a model developed by the New Zealand Department of Conservation for their island weed management programmes: a close-spaced grid-search and treatment methodology within 6-8 hectare blocks.
