DescriptionInvasive plants are now recognized as a serious threat to most extensive management systems, such as forests, meadows, deserts, and riparian areas [1-3]. Vitousek et al.  described exotic plant invasion as a significant element of global environmental change because exotic plants can alter primary productivity, decomposition, hydrology, nutrient cycling, and natural disturbance regimes. Non-native plants also impact landscapes by changing the structure, composition, and successional pathways of native communities [3-8].
