Bringing together reasons for why and where weeds occur and the ecological importance of weed management, this updated edition (previously entitled "Weed Ecology") provides an in-depth study of plant ecology with greater coverage of invasive plant biology and more concise statistics. In a new, larger format, printed in two colours, and illustrated throughout with figures, tables and case studies it is an essential text for students in plant ecology, agriculture and horticulture.
