Interim profile, incomplete information
Details of this species in Saint Helena
Source: Ashmole & Ashmole 2003
Species Notes for this Location:
Nicotiana glauca is common in some of the driest parts of the Crown Wastes, from near sea level in guts to about 400m (Varnham 2006). N. glauca is mainly a colonist of gullies, and is most widely distributed on the seaward eastern slopes and cliffs. The spread of alien shrubsincluding N. glauca on Prosperous Bay Plain (Saint Helena) is a wholly negative factor. Left unchecked, these species will probably make considerable changes to the area, leading to severe degradation of its community of native invertebrates (Ashmole & Ashmole 2003).
Management Notes for this Location:
Ashmole & Ashmole (2003) observe that the complete removal of wild tobacco is probably impracticable.
