The damaging impacts of pest plants and animals on natural and productive systems are widely recognised, and in native ecosystems they pose a serious threat to the conservation of biodiversity. This unit focuses on the ecology and management of pest plants and animals, especially introduced species. Topics covered include reproduction, distribution and persistence of pest species, and the relevant state and national legislation. Control strategies, including biological, chemical and mechanical techniques will be examined, and integrated pest management will be emphasised using case studies.
