Editors: Rudolph V. Kingely
Book Description:
The term "weed" means different things to different people. In the broadest sense, it is any plant growing where it is not wanted. Weeds can be native or non-native, invasive or non invasive, and noxious or not noxious. This new book presents the latest research from around the world in this important field.
