Weed mapping is undertaken to determine priorities for control and to monitor results. We do not map all weeds. The priority is to record/map new weed incursions to know how eradication or control is progressing and to monitor for recurrence. This will help prevent further spread. We are working on new incursion mapping now.
In collaboration with the SMCMA, some mapping of high priority aquatic and grass weed infestation has been done.
Priority control areas were determined for the dangerous aquatic, Alligator Weed, by overlaying weed infestation records with areas of high conservation, including wetlands.
Maps will soon be available of precious natural areas (endangered ecological communities) which member organisations are working in to prevent their destruction by weed invasion. It is most important that the public help by making a great effort to have no invasive species on their land that could then re-infest these sites.
