    Description

    Natural areas managers contend with an increasingly diverse array of invasive species in their mission to conserve the health and integrity of ecosystems under their charge. As users, nearby neighbours and de facto 'owners' of the lands where many significant natural areas reside, the public is often highly supportive of broad programme goals for management and restoration, but becomes less enamoured when specific actions such as prescribed burning or biocide applications are called for (Barro and Bright, 1998). Frequently these actions are aimed at invasive plants and animals, mostly non-native exotics but at times invasive natives that due to their abundance or location may also interfere with restoration objectives.
