Alien Plants in Ireland, 2007. Fallopia japonicaSummary:
The database of alien plants in Ireland contains detailed information on 715 alien plant taxa currently occurring in (semi-) natural habitats in Ireland (both the Republic and Northern-Ireland). This database was developed in 2006 at the School of Natural Sciences, Trinity College Dublin, as part of the BioChange project, funded by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Ireland.

This compilation of information sources can be sorted on keywords for example: Baits & Lures, Non Target Species, Eradication, Monitoring, Risk Assessment, Weeds, Herbicides etc. This compilation is at present in Excel format, this will be web-enabled as a searchable database shortly. This version of the database has been developed by the IUCN SSC ISSG as part of an Overseas Territories Environmental Programme funded project XOT603 in partnership with the Cayman Islands Government - Department of Environment. The compilation is a work under progress, the ISSG will manage, maintain and enhance the database with current and newly published information, reports, journal articles etc.

The Japanese Knotweed Alliance was established in November 1999 to highlight the problems posed by this invasive weed and to promote its natural control with biological predators in Europe where such control is poorly understood. It provides valuable information about the plant, its problems and the potential for biological control as well as links to other sites.

Tu, M., Hurd, C., and Randall, J.M. 2001. Weed Control Methods Handbook, The Nature Conservancy, Version: April 2001.Summary:
This Handbook is divided into eight chapters, covering a range of different control methods. Successful weed control requires the combination or sequential use of several methods (called integrated weed management). Consider all available control options: manual, mechanical, promoting competition from native plants, grazing, biocontrol, herbicides, prescribed fire, solarization, flooding, and other, more novel, techniques. Each has advantages and disadvantages in terms of its effects against the target weed(s), impacts to untargeted plants and animals, risks to human health and safety, and costs. The chapters discuss the advantages and disadvantages for each method and provide examples of their successful (and in some cases unsuccessful) use in natural areas.

Summary: A new combination is provided for the hybrid between Polygonum cuspidatum and P. sachalinense. The hybrid, Polygonum X bohemicum (J. Chrtek & A. Chrtkova) P. F. Zika & A. L. Jacobson, comb. nov., is widespread and invasive across North America. We illustrate the parents and hybrid, and supply a key to distinguish the three taxa.
