    Description

    More than 4000 nonnative plant species have been introduced to the U.S. and Canada. Identifying potentially invasive species is an important goal. Ecologists have generally agreed that there is no simple biological predictor of invasion success, but certain biological traits tend to be associated with invasion success more than others.
