The devastating fires of Black Saturday 2009 burnt 430,000ha of land in Victoria, most centred along the Great Divide and including locations such as Mt Disappointment, Mt Robertson, Toolangi, Black Range, Marysville and Blue Range State Forests, together with Kinglake National Park and Cathedral State Park. These areas support many threatened plant species and communities, some of which rely on fire to regenerate. However, weeds which germinate after bushfires or which are introduced by disturbance from machinery may affect threatened native plants, or damage the fabric of cultural sites. As part of an intensive post fire weed control program conducted on public land, this app was developed to assist scientists, land managers and the general public to identify and locate weeds within the fire affected area. The weeds listed in this App are those representing the highest overall environmental risk, as identified by Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) and Parks Victoria staff. Their identification and management is important.
