Plants from other ecoregions around the globe often become invasive because they did not evolve with our native flora and fauna and thus have no natural predators (insects, fungi, bacteria, etc.). Therefore, they outcompete native species for space, water, light, and nutrients. As a result, invasive species crowd out native species creating monocultures where wildlife cannot thrive.
