Review By: home - April 2010

Clive Bromilow's third revised edition of Problem Plants and Alien Weeds of South Africa is as much a reliable source of identification for those wanting to eradicate and control alien invasives as its predecessors. It's no secret that our agricultural production and botanical inheritance is threatened by the proliferation of a variety of exotic invaders. So this third edition now also contains a list of all the plants that threaten our biodiversity. With over 700 colour images and detailing more than 500 species of problem plants, and including maps depicting where these invaders can be found, this informative book also highlights their legal status and specifies how they can be controlled, both biologically and chemically. A must for anyone who cares about their environment.
