The Japanese Knotweed Manual
Max Wade
Lois Child

Synopsis

The Japanese Knotweed Manual is as much concerned with preventing an outbreak of the weed in an area as it is with its containment when the plant is already established. Essential information and management guidelines are presented together with colour and black & white photographs, diagrams and case studies from Europe, Japan and North America. Coverage focuses on the ecology of this invasive weed and the problems caused by its spread outside its native habitats. The manual also shows how to develop an effective programme for raising awareness of the plant in communities, the prevention of an invasion, and herbicidal, mechanical, manual and biological control options as well as the methods and requirements for disposal, including legal aspects. A comprehensive bibliography provides a valuable resource for further research.
