AbstractFull Text

Acacia saligna (Port Jackson) is one of the most pervasive IAPs in South Africa. The government's control efforts have by and large not been co-financed by the private sector due to a lack of incentives. Here we develop a system dynamics model to assess the costs and benefits of using the invasive ...

AbstractFull Text

Environmental degradation caused by invasive alien plants must be remedied in time before the land becomes too heavily degraded for restoration to be successful. This study investigates the cost-benefit analysis of restoring natural capital through clearing invasive alien plants and transforming...
