Chromolaena (Siam weed) is a serious weed which has spread from its original home in the West Indies to large areas of Africa and Asia. It is a major weed threat to Australia. Chromolaena has many enemies and biological control has long been recognised as a control option. This book contains papers presented at the 6th International Workshop on Biological Control and Management of Chromolaena and looks at a number of the control agents which have been tested.
