‘Invasive Plants’

with Gordon Gray Stephens.

What are they?

Invasive non-native species (INNS) are species which have been introduced, as a result of human activity, to an area where they are not native, and which are detrimental to native species and habitats.  Well-known examples are Japanese Knotweed, Himalayan Balsam and Rhododendron.  As well as affecting the natural environment, many INNS have a negative economic and social impact.  For instance. Japanese Knotweed can  damage buildings.
