    ‘The impact of invasive, non-native
    plant species like African lovegrass is
    increasing dramatically. Many consider
    it a pest species because it dominates
    native pastures reducing biodiversity
    and essential ecosystem functions.
    We worked with local landholders in
    Bega, NSW and found local knowledge
    coupled with scientific methods is a
    smart approach to developing solutions.
    This approach could be useful for
    understanding and managing other
    invasive plants and animals.’
