Invasive plants of natural habitats in Canada : an integrated review of wetland and upland species and legislation governing their control. : CW66-127/1999E-PDF

"In this report, the term invasive indicates a plant that has moved into a habitat and reproduced so aggressively that it has displaced some of the original components of the vegetative community. The term natural area indicates an area that is in a largely undisturbed condition and supports primarily species that are native to the area. ... The present study was undertaken in order to research and document the occurrence of invasive species of natural habitats in Canada. The study consisted of a review of relevant literature and the soliciting of opinions from a wide range of botanists across Canada"--p. [4] and [11].
