Weeds Australia – Weeds Database Search: “The noxious weeds list for Australia is based on the botanical name used in the legislation for each jurisdiction. In many instances, a plant may be known by a number of scientific names and common names or synonyms. We have endeavoured to construct the database in such a way as to enable the trapping of all occurrences of a plant in the list regardless of the name used.”
This whole site has a wealth of information and is extremely well organised. It can be broken down into states or you can look at teh whole of Australia. Plants can be beautiful but when they take over the landscape, kill natives, do not supply the feed for wild life and destroy our rivers and waterways, then we need to look at what we are planting and where we are planting it. Lantana, horehound, olives can all do considerable damage to our environment. We need to know our weeds so we are not contributing to the problem. A site like this is there to make it easy for us.
