Slide Text:

Native vs. Invasive Plants

  • Native plants are plants that naturally occur in a given area
  • Invasive species are defined as non-native to the ecosystem under consideration and whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health.
  • Introduced plants may become invasive since they lack co-evolved competitors and natural enemies to control their population.
  • Invasive: exotic, alien
