Details of this species in U Minh Thuong Nature Reserve
Source: Triet et al. Undated
Arrival Date: 2000
Introduction: Unintentional (accidentally)
Species Notes for this Location:
In U Minh Thuong National Park, Vietnam, invasion by Mimosa pigra was detected early. In 2000, mimosa was found in two small spots with a total area of less than one hectare (Triet 2001, in Triet et al Undated). Mimosa seeds were probably brought into the site in construction sands.
Management Notes for this Location:
The infested areas were quickly treated by manual methods (hand pulling and stem cutting). Park management established a weed control team, which has been patrolling the park once a month since then to monitor mimosa and other important environmental weeds. The weed was eradicated at little cost, highlighting the importance of invasion awareness and early intervention for mimosa control.
