The Tropical Weeds Research Centre provides this service to develop and improve management options for invasive plant pests and animals that threaten Tropical Queensland's natural resources. Many of these are declared pests under the Land Protection Act (Pest and Stock Route Management) 2002.
Businesses can apply to have research undertaken on invasive plants and animals threatening tropical areas of Queensland. Access is also available to results of past contracted research and the results of projects undertaken by the Centre independently.
Businesses can obtain information on current research being undertaken into the management of tropical pests, plants and animals.
A series of fact sheets addressing specific tropical pests (animal and plants) are available to business.
The fact sheets provide details on identification and the recommended control techniques.
The staff from the "Tropical Weeds Research Centre" are available to conduct presentations at seminars, workshops, conferences and field days on all aspects of tropical pest management research.
For technical advice and information on tropical pest management the Centre will direct inquiries to the appropriate Biosecurity Officer or Local Government Weeds Officer for a particular area.
