Brooks, S. J. and Erbacher, K. (2022) Progress in the eradication of Miconia calvescens from Australia. In: 22nd Australasian Weeds Conference, 25 – 29 September 2022, Adelaide, South Australia.



Miconia calvescens (Miconia) is a target of the nationally cost-shared National Tropical Weeds Eradication Program which commenced in late 2003. Miconia calvescens infestations have been found in wet tropical areas between the Whyanbeel Valley and Tully in north Queensland, as well as in southeast Queensland and northern New South Wales. Updates to the methods for measuring eradication and progress towards removing this rainforest invader from a challenging environment in some of the wettest parts of Australia are presented below.
