Increasing global trades and human activities have led to biological invasions worldwide. Furthermore, climate change increases the risk of expansions of the distribution of invasive alien species (IAS) in recent years. Such invasion of alien species into native ecosystem has reduced biodiversity and altered landscape structures and ecosystem functions while also having harmful effects on the social economy and human well-being. Many aspects of knowledge regarding alien species are required for effective management and control programs.
This Special Issue aims to contribute to the existing knowledge concerning the current status of invasive alien plants and their impact on ecosystems and their management.
