Summary

Invasive terrestrial plants are responsible for drying up rivers, poisoning horses, and pushing native plants to extinction. For example, kudzu, from Japan, was planted in the U.S. as a forage crop and to control erosion. Now this fast-growing vine is smothering native vegetation and taking over bridges and power lines throughout the South. Invasive Terrestrial Plants identifies the worst of these plant invaders, explaining the ecological and economic toll they exact, how they are introduced from all over the world, and what is being done to stop their spread.
