Knotty News

The BBC has an article about the fight against Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica) in Britain. Not really much new here: it's invasive, it is costly and difficult to manage, they're still working on developing a biocontrol...At the very least, it's good to see the project getting some publicity. But it would have been nice to see the BBC do some in-depth reporting and actually describe the beetle species being used in the biocontrol project.

Thanks to a member of the Japanese knotweed listserver for posting a link to this article.
