Abstract

Wandering Jew (Tradescantia fluminensis Vell) is a common weed in canopydepleted indigenous forest remnants in New Zealand In this study triclopyr was applied to dense stands of wandering Jew at a range of rates in each of two experiments (Diamond Harbour in the South Island and Te Pahu in the North Island) to determine its effects on the weed and subsequent regrowth The cover of wandering Jew was initially reduced by 80100 with herbicide application At about 1 year after application of the herbicide the wandering Jew had regrown to about 350 cover depending on the rate of triclopyr applied and some indigenous seedlings had begun to appear However the survival of these seedlings was minimal
