The management of terrestrial weed is of great concern for the scientific community as these weeds cause adverse effect in different ecosystems like forest, agriculture and urban. The widespread of these weeds by their adaptive capability and morphological advancement is difficult to control. Parthenium hysterophorous, Lantana camara, Saccharum spontaneum, Ageratum conyzoides are the weeds that spread all over the world. There are various management practices employed for the control of this weeds.

Lantana, a kind of poisonous weed, keeps increasingly eating into the fodder banks in the Terai pocket and other zones of Uttarakhand forests, resulting in growing number of man-animal conflicts an

Recent discussion on invasive species has invigorated the debate on strategies to manage these species. Lantana camara L., a shrub native to the American tropics, has become one of the worst weeds in recorded history. In Australia, India and South Africa, Lantana has become very widespread occupying millions of hectares of land. Here, we examine historical records to reconstruct invasion and management of Lantana over two centuries and ask: Can we fight the spread of invasive species or do we need to develop strategies for their adaptive management?

An investigation was carried to understand the density and diversity pattern of the plantation area of Chaur as Tehri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. A total of 13 trees, 6 shrubs and 14 herb species were encountered in all plantation areas.

AHMEDABAD: The forest department officials are weeding out Lantana shrubs from the Gir sanctuary to make room for herbivorous animals, the main prey for lions. Lantana, a type of weed, is thwarting the growth of local plant species in the sanctuary. This is one reason why the sanctuary fails to attract more herbivorous animals and is also keeping the lions away from a major part of their habitat. In a way, the dense growth of this weed is adversely affecting the sanctuary's capacity to house more animals.

The removal of lantana on the safari route inside the Bandipur National Park in Gundlupet taluk of Chamarajanagar district, is helping visitors in seeing the wild animals from a close angle.

There were complaints from tourists regarding poor visibility of the animals due to growth of the lantana on the safari route.

Following complaints, the Deputy Conservator of Forests Hanumanthappa took s

Lantana is a rapidly growing obnoxious weed though it has potential of purposeful utilization. Preservation of bamboo during storage with the help of preservative of natural origin i.e. Lantana extract may result in saving of material.

The genus Quercus (oak) is a large group of hardwood trees with about 600 species worldwide1. In the Himalayan region, extensive oak forests (35 species) occur between 1500 and 3300 m elevations. Of the various species of oaks, the white oak or banj (Q. leucotrichophora) forms an extensive belt along the middle elevation (1200

Lantana camara is an invasive species that is widespread in India. Using birds as an indicator taxon, we investigated whether Lantana invasion was correlated with changes in ecosystem health of the moist and dry deciduous forests at the Mal

Invasion by exotic species is among the most important global-scale problems experienced by natural ecosystems. Studies document that floristic changes that emerge after habitat fragmentation may be due to invasion by exotic weeds.
