Ecoscape, as lead consultant in a consortium of specialists, prepared the Environmental Weed Strategy for Western Australia which determined the list of 1350 environmental weeds and developed criteria which rated these weeds according to their impacts on biodiversity. The report also examined management strategies, control methods and the involvement of government, private and community groups in weed management. A relational database using Access 97 was prepared as part of the strategy – known as ‘weedBase’. A major component of the project was the establishment of an interactive weeds database website. The website provides a resource for identification of weed species, an accurate picture of their distribution, information on spread, environmental impacts and appropriate control methods.
