Abstract

This document summarises the 2020–21 program of the Invasive Plants and Animals Research group in Biosecurity Queensland. Our applied research program aims to better manage Queensland’s worst weeds and pest animals, reducing their impacts on agriculture, the environment and the community.
Our work is undertaken at five centres across the state:
• Ecosciences Precinct, Dutton Park
• Health and Food Sciences Precinct, Coopers Plains
• Pest Animal Research Centre, Toowoomba
• Tropical Weeds Research Centre, Charters Towers
• Tropical Weeds Research Centre, South Johnstone.
We also collaborate with numerous Queensland, interstate and overseas organisations. Higher degree students are supported to work on several research projects in weed and pest animal management.
The research projects summarised in this document cover the development of effective control strategies and methods (e.g. biocontrol and herbicides), as well as improved knowledge of pest species’ biology and assessment of pest impact.
