4 participants 16 spottings

A species is invasive when it is both nonnative to the ecosystem in which it is found, and capable of causing environmental, economic, or human harm. Invasive species often compete so successfully in new ecosystems that they displace native species and disrupt important ecosystem processes. Plants, fish, insects, mammals, birds, and diseases all can be invasive. Invasive species can negatively impact ecosystems in a variety of ways. They can displace native species, reduce native wildlife habitat, reduce forest health and productivity, alter ecosystem processes, and degrade recreation areas. Mapping the locations of invasive species will help a variety of organizations zero in on where to work on additional conservation efforts.
