As you travel throughout the tropical regions of the world it becomes apparent that some vegetative characters are ubiquitous: pleasantly scented frangipanis, divinely aesthetic orchids, dangerous falling coconuts and the iconic hibiscus. Though the latter are most prolific as the cotton and dye variety on the loudly coloured clothing of locals. Yet dig a little deeper amongst the agricultural endeavors of the local populace and you will find another form of ubiquitous vegetation: that of the scattered patches of weed-filled, often logged, human-disturbed or degraded (hereafter referred to as disturbed) tropical rainforest.
