Abstract

•Community-based, polycentric governance of invasive species control has potential to be more effective than traditional government-centred approaches.•Research was conducted to explore this potential with respect to the invasive weed Nassella trichotoma in New South Wales, Australia.•Lack of effective collective action is a more significant barrier to effective control of this species than lack of information.•Landholders are willing to participate in community-based serrated tussock management to improve the collective response to this problem.•Such an approach is feasible, and should complement rather than replace existing serrated tussock management approaches.
