as yes or no).
The Rating System used in the Environmental Weed Strategy for Western Australia
A weed species would have to score yes for all three criteria. Rating a weed species
as high would indicate prioritising this weed for control and/or research.
Moderate A weed species would have to score yes for two of the above criteria. Rating a
weed species as moderate would indicate that control or research effort should be
directed to it if funds are available; however it should be monitored (possibly a
reasonably high level of monitoring).
A weed species scoring one of the criteria. A mild rating would indicate monitoring
of the weed and control where appropriate.
A weed species would score none of the criteria. A low ranking would mean that
this species would require a low level of monitoring.
