A guide to the identification of the most important and potentially dangerous invasive aquatic and wetland plants in South Africa. Plant Protection Research Institute Handbook No. 16. Agricultural Research Council, South Africa. SPECIES NOT WANTED IN SOUTHERN AFRICA. The list is based on prohibited and noxious plant lists for South Africa and other countries which share many invasive species with southern Africa, namely Australia, New Zealand, United States of America (federal list), Florida (State list) and California (State list) see references after the list. The list includes species not yet in southern Africa and those which may be present but are scarce and their cultivation should be discouraged. Algae are excluded.
