New Zealand national weeds distribution database : a feasibility study
Environment Southland (ES) aims to predict the environmental and economic risks posed by particular species of weeds that are already established in the region or that are currently absent but already naturalised elsewhere in New Zealand. A knowledge of national weed distributions would facilitate national and regional reporting on changes in weed distribution. This information on distribution changes can be used to monitor the success of weed management strategies and to assist in developing models for predicting weed risk. To this end ES contracted scientists at the University of Canterbury and AgResearch Ltd to establish the feasibility of developing a readily accessible, userfriendly, national database, to collate, hold and disseminate data about weed distributions throughout New Zealand.
