The Nature Conservancy tests 'revolutionary' new technology to protect native forests
New remote sensing technology using multi-spectral imaging will let conservation officials sit at computer screens and recognize the major weeds on their properties. Australian tree fern, miconia or strawberry guava plants can be located in remote forested areas, according to tests from TNC on Kauai (TNC, 7/29/2008).

Australian tree fern's fast growth made it popular, makes it a pest View info about Adobe Acrobat PDF format
Australian tree fern's history in Hawaii and devastating impacts are reviewed in this article from the Maui Invasive Species Committee (MISC) (Maui News, 8/12/2007).

Eradicating 'superweed' is an information war
