Click title above for more information

 

Some plants, introduced by humans outside their native range can grow faster than native species and may have no natural predators so can spread quickly These plants are invasive non-native species. They can compete with and displace native species, spread disease, alter local ecology, lessen biodiversity and clog waterways. This adversely impacts recreation by affecting water quality, fishing and navigation.
