Weeds & pests
Bush Invaders of south-east Australia is a field guide for anyone who loves and cares about the Australian bush. Covering all of Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT and much of South Australia and New South Wales, it allows the reader to identify the most serious environmental weeds in the region and offers comprehensive details on their control and removal.
There are a large number of plants found on farms and bush blocks, along roadsides, in waste places and in gardens that are considered poisonous to livestock, domestic pets and people.
Is that plant poisonous? will help you become more aware and familiar with these plants, most of which are of a weedy nature. It has been written for everyone, but especially for farmers, gardeners, bush walkers, pet owners, veterinary surgeons and parents.
