Hi All

Do environmental weeds directly harm any birds (or other
creatures) in Australia ? 

See the message below and if you have any info. please respond
to John Virtue at:

This message appeared earlier today on the "Enviroweeds" mailing
list and John asked me to put it on Birding-Aus.

Dear all. I'm trying to come across some references on examples
in Australia
of environmental weeds affecting native animal health. Not
interested so
much in indirect effects through competition with native food
plants or
restriction of access to such, but rather examples of direct
effects such as
physical injury, poisoning and allergic reactions. Know of one
reference so
Brown PR, Wallis RL, Simmons D and Adams R (1991) Weeds and
Wildlife. Plant
Protection Quarterly 6(3) 150-153

Thanks in advance,
