Résumé

Chondrilla juncea is an important weed in Australia. The morphology, ecology and chromosome number of species of the genusChondrilla indicate that the generic centre of evolution is in southern. Bussia and that dispersal has occurred westwards, as far as western Europe, with a reduction in the number ofChondrilla species. The number of organisms specific toChondrilla also increases as one approaches the generic centre of evolution. Therefore, to discover the greatest number of specific, biological control organisms for a weed, surveys should commence initially at its generic evolutionary centre. The application of this principle to genera of other important Australian weeds, namely toEchium which has two evolutionary centres and toHeliotropium which has a number of sub-generic evolutionary centres is discussed.
