Literature Review: National list of exotic pasture species

This publication is a literature review of the prevalence of exotic pasture species in New Zealand's wetlands and wet pasture areas. The aim of the literature review was to inform which exotic pasture species should be included in a National List of Exotic Pasture Species proposed to be incorporated by reference into the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2020. The purpose of the list is to inform the assessment of the ‘pasture exclusion’ as set out in the proposed amendments to the definition of a natural wetland.
