    Abstract

    Recently Downey (2011) suggested that weed management needed to transition to an outcome orientated management system. In order to make such a transition weed management needs to encompass the outcome of weed control actions, rather than just focusing on the action of control per se. An outcome orientated system is critical for managing weeds for conservation purposes. To ensure that weed management delivers conservation outcomes, information on the species at risk needs to be incorporated into the planning and management processes. Here we report on one such program which involves the management of a Weed of National Significance (WoNS) and a nationally listed Critically Endangered Species (Environment Protection Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999).
