Invasive vegetation

Invasive vegetation

An exotic plant adapted to similar growing conditions as those found in the region to which it is imported. Because such a species usually has no natural enemies, such as pests, diseases, or grazers, it flourishes, disrupting the native ecosystem and forcing out native plant species, which results in habitat loss and water-table modification.
