Adaptive management of the invasive shrub Mimosa pigra at Gorongosa National Park




Mimosa pigra, one of the 100 "World's Worst" invasive species (Global Invasive Species Database), is a highly aggressive shrub that poses a serious threat to biodiversity, water resources, and tourism at Gorongosa National Park. Mimosa is native to tropical America, but has invaded ecosystems worldwide including Africa, Asia, Pacific islands, and Australia, favoring a wet-dry tropical climate with at least 750 mm annual rainfall. Mimosa is wellestablished on the floodplains, pans, and waterways of Gorongosa, and may be poised to expand rapidly in the future if it is not effectively managed.
