Herbicides, weeds and endangered species: management of bitou bush ( Chrysanthemoides monilifera ssp. rotundata ) with glyphosate and impacts on the endangered shrub, Pimelea spicata
Environmental weed invasion threatens the biodiversity of native species. Unfortunately, managing these weeds may also affect biodiversity adversely. A recent example occurred when glyphosate, a herbicide used to control the highly invasive weed, bitou bush (Chrysanthemoides monilifera ssp. rotundata), accidentally drifted over a small population of an endangered shrub, Pimelea spicata. Following concerns that the affected population would not recover and, thereby, cause the local extinction of...[Show more]
