Impacts

Invasive species impact the region in a number of ways. They can have detrimental effects on the environment, such as when a single plant species dominates an entire ecosystem. Others, like the Formosan termite, can cause physical damage with extreme economic effects. Perhaps most importantly, our very cultural identity can be threatened when plants and animals that we've lived with for generations begin to succumb to the effects of invasive species.
