INVASIVE PLANTS & WEEDS IDENTIFICATION MOUNT ISA CITY COUNCIL REGION

The Biosecurity Act 2014 improves Queensland’s biosecurity preparedness and response capabilities. Weeds and pest animals have significant impacts on the environment, the economy and the community, including human health and recreation.

Noxious weeds are plants that invade native ecosystems and adversely affect the survival of indigenous flora and fauna. Noxious weeds can be foreign plants accidentally or intentionally introduced into Australia, or they can be native plants that have become weedy due to inappropriate management, or because they are outside of their normal range.
