Defining a weed is more complex than the usual variations of "a plant out of place". It depends on time, place and the identity of the people affected by it, and can change as uses are found for the unwanted plant. Whether or not a plant is introduced can also affect its status. This study uses examples of weeds in the Australian state of Queensland.
