  We just published “Mikania micrantha: its status and impact on people and wildlife in Nepal” in a new book, Invasive Alien Plants: Impact on Development and Options for Management, from the Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences International (). Mikania micrantha also known as mile-a-minute has many common names including Lahare Banmara (लहरे बनमारा) in Nepali. Presented here is summary information about the species Mikania micrantha from the Global Compendium of Weeds, and citations of references to this species as a tions of terms are available in the GCW further information--or to report corrections or concerns--contact [email protected]

Mikania micrantha H.B.K is an invasive alien weed in South China. To help understand the mechanisms of its invasiveness, we studied its seed germination ecophysiology. To help understand the mechanisms of its invasiveness, we studied its seed germination by: Mikania micrantha (Asteraceae), or mile-a-minute weed, is a major invasive alien weed in many regions throughout Asia, and is still invading new areas. It affects agricultural ecosystems, native vegetation and agroforestry. Under the CPP a two Phase project was funded to investigate control options for this weed: R / ZA (Phase 1) and.

Mikania micrantha is an alien invasive weed which causes serious havoc to natural forests and plantations. It is also a serious threat to agricultural production systems. Bio-control methods are not successful, though pathogens were recorded from the plant. Though herbicide is effective to control the weed, it is not environmentally friendly.

As part of a census of the Indian rhinoceros Rhinoceros unicornis a survey was conducted to measure the extent of invasion by the neotropical plant mikania Mikania micrantha across major habitats of Chitwan National Park important for the conservation of the rhinoceros.

Previous work has demonstrated that this fire-adapted plant can smother and kill native flora such as grasses and sapling trees, several of which are important fodder plants of the by: Mikania micrantha is a perennial climber, originally from tropical America.

It is a major invasive in several parts of south-east Asia and the Pacific islands. It was introduced in India in the s as ground cover in tea plantations (Prabu, Stalin & Swamy, ), and is now a serious threat to several plantation crops as well as forest areas all over the country.

the invasive weed Mikania micrantha H.B.K. In this experiment we test whether the impacts of the parasite on host growth, biomass allocation, photosynthesis, chlorophyll content, and soluble protein are affected by the density of the parasite.

We examined the response of M. micrantha to infection densities of 0, 1, 2, 4 and 8 C. This book, for the first time, brings together a wide range of invasive plant specialists from the Asia-Pacific region who shares their experience in addressing the problem and delivering solutions.

Reddy. General Impacts. Once established, Mikania micrantha spreads at an alarming rate, readily climbing and twining on any vertical support, including crops, bushes, trees, walls and fences.

Its shoots have been reported to grow up to 27mm a day. Vegetative reproduction is also efficient and vigorous. Some of the invasive alien weeds of the Western Ghats, S. India, are identified.

They include Lantana camara, Chromolaena odorata, Ageratina adenophora, Mikania micrantha, Mimosa invisa, Bidens pilosa and Prosopis juliflora. The most effective management strategies for these weeds, including biological control, are briefly by: Integrated Management of the Alien Invasive Weed Mikania micrantha in the Western Ghats: more: ISSN Litter Dynamics, Microbial Associations and Soil Studies in Acacia auriculiformis Plantations in Kerala.

To screen allelochemical-resistant species of the alien invasive weed Mikania micrantha, we studied the allelopathic inhibition effects of the leaf aqueous extract (LAE) of Mikania on seed germination and seedling growth of the 26 species native or naturalized in the invaded region in South China.

Seed germination was more strongly negatively affected by LAE than seedling by: 3. the effect of invasive alien species on local plant communities and biodiversity has become a major research focus worldwide.
