Welcome to the national site for recording the
distribution of weed biological control agents
This web site aims to centralise information on the known distribution, availability and redistribution methods of weed biological control agents in south eastern Australia. This will help to enhance community knowledge and adoption of biological control and enable its benefits to be enjoyed by more people and its impacts to be better understood.
The project is funded by the Federal Government, through Caring for our Country and by States through Department of Primary Industries (Victoria), the NSW Department of Primary Industries, the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture and the South Australian Research and Development Institute. The Atlas of Living Australia is a key partner, as the developer and host of this website.
