dc.description.abstract One of the major problems in determining the origin of invasive species is that often their arrival is unnoticed. Only when population levels increase is their presence noticed but by this time determining the point of arrival is confounded by the extensive spread of the species. Here we use molecular markers (ISSRs) to determine the origin of an invasive weed in the Kalahari region, a species for which several origins could be possible. We show that molecular markers can be useful tools in determining the origin of invasive species. en_US
