This report quantifies clonal propagation in the invasive aquatic weed Sagittaria platyphylla by determining corm production and regenerative capacity under controlled herbicide treatment and growth environments. The relative contribution of clonal reproduction to dispersal and invasive spread was assessed by evaluating the spatial genetic structure of S. platyphylla in the core region of its current distribution in Victorian waterways.
