Most of Australia’s agricultural crops and flocks are introduced species. Unfortunately, a large number of pests – animal, insect and plant – are also introduced. Introduced Plants & Speciesexplores the issue in depth.
Examining pastoral, domestic and game animals, ferals, vermin, exotics, field crops, weeds and more, the text details why and how each was introduced and the benefits and pitfalls.
Suitable for science and issues classrooms, and as a library resource, Introduced Plants & Species is a valuable part of the Australian Focus on Issues series from Watts Publishing.
