Invasive Species

Invasive species are ones that are non-native to the ecosystem under consideration and whose introduction causes or is likely to cause harm to the economy, the environmental, or human health. These species are characterized by their ability to grow quickly, spread to different areas, and withstand many environmental conditions.
