"The most serious threats are those weeds so aggressive that they invade intact native ecosystems. These invasive aliens exhibit rapid growth and maturity; prolific seed production; highly successful seed dispersal, germination, and colonization; ability to outcompete native species; and high cost to remove and control. Often they are also free of the natural pests left behind in their native lands." — John Eastman, Book of Field and Roadside.
