Conference on effective control of Reynoutria spp. and other invasive alien plants in Europe (Falmouth, GB, 2007-03-21/22)

Cornwall Knotweed Forum is a partnership with representatives from a wide range of organisations including universities, local authorities, statutory agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), industry, landowners and individuals. It is dedicated to promoting a co-ordinated approach for managing Reynoutria spp. (= Fallopia spp.) and other introduced invasive plants through partnerships. This forum has implemented a GIS survey recording system in association with the Botanical Society of the British Isles. It has also produced publications and guidance notes, and participated in scientific research projects. Cornwall Knotweed Forum, now ten years old, is willing to share experiences across Europe during its next conference on “Effective control of Japanese Knotweed and other Introduced Terrestrial Invasive Plants in Europe” in Falmouth (Cornwall, GB) on 2007-03-21/22.
