Negative Effects of Invasive Species on Native Species
Presented by Jill Hapner, Ph.D. Jill is the Executive Director of the Southeastern WI Invasive Species Consortium, Inc. http://sewisc.org
"Invasive species", or invasive exotics, are non-indigenous species, or "non-native", plants or animals that adversely affect the habitats and bio-regions they invade economically, environmentally, and/or ecologically. They disrupt by dominating a region, wilderness areas, particular habitats, and/or wildland-urban interface land from loss of natural controls (i.e.: predators or herbivores). This includes non-native invasive plant species labeled as exotic pest plants and invasive exotics, in restoration parlance, growing in native plant communities.
