The WEEDS RESEARCH PROGRAMME is responsible for research on the ecology and control of invasive alien plants in South Africa. Our emphasis is on non-native problem plants in conservation and pasture situations, as well as non-native aquatic weeds. Crop weeds do not normally fall within our research field.
