I think this is a very difficult subject as all plants are weeds. A 
definition of what is a weed is very necessary but extremely difficult 
in reality. The one that says a weed is a plant out of place is really 
the only realistic one without getting very technical. Some use the term 
where a plant has a commercial consequence and causes loss of production 
in some area or for example contaminates wool from sheep. I am not sure 
that there is any plant that is not a weed. Is there a universal 
definition that could be adopted? I have my doubts.
