Weeds and Biodiversity
The working group was established with the aims of fostering discussion and research on the role of weeds for biological diversity.
Research is demonstrating the importance of weeds for many other taxa in farmed landscapes. With greater appreciation of the complex ecological interactions within agroecosystems and with regulatory organizations examining the impact of non-target effects of pesticides, this Working Group should provide a forum for discussions between members and enhance relevant research.
