      Summary: The Giant Alien project under the 5th Framework Programme of the European Union has taken an integrated approach to develop just such a sustainable strategy for invasive alien weed management in Europe. The project started in January 2002 and finished in April 2005. This manual mainly refers to Heracleum mantegazzianum but is also usable for the closely related H. sosnowskyi and H. persicum. One overall objective of our project was to provide all European authorities (e.g. municipalities, counties, districts, highway agencies, environment agencies) and private landowners with scientifically based but simple and practical management methods to reduce the abundance and prevent further spread of the invasive hogweeds.
      The manual is available in eight different languages from: English, Czech, Danish, Dutch, German, French, Latvian, and Russian
      Summary: The manual provides information about as many relevant aspects as possible of the biology, ecology and management of tall invasive hogweeds in Europe: Taxonomy and genetics, development and phenology (seasonal changes and growth cycle), population dynamics, interactions with soil, nutrients, vegetation cover, land use change and control options.This brochure is also available in eight languages at the project homepage

      Summary: The Giant Hogweed Heracleum mantegazzianum is a pernicious invasive species, with significant impact on human health due to its phytoxic sap. From its native area, the Caucasus, it has spread across Europe creating serious environmental and health problems. This book, the output of a threeyear EU project involving 40 European experts, is an authoritative compendium of current knowledge on this amazing invasive plant and will facilitate improved management. It is an invaluable resource for both practitioner and student, and covers topics including taxonomy, genetics, reproduction, population ecology, and invasion dynamics. It also reviews the possibilities of mechanical, chemical and biological control. on this amazing invasive plant and will facilitate improved management.
