  Introduction. Woody plant invaders have been introduced through the ornamental plant trade, forestry, agriculture, and/or as accidental introductions (Pemberton & Liu ).Escaped ornamental and other horticultural species account for 52% of naturalised species in Europe (Lambdon et al. ), more than half of wildland invasive plants globally, and more than 80% of woody invaders Cited by: Download PDF: Sorry, we are unable to provide the full text but you may find it at the following location(s): (external link)Author: Sarah H Reichard. Plant species continue to be introduced in North America for various purposes. If the trend continues, it is probable that some will escape cultivation and become invasive in native ecosystems. We present a retrospective analysis of several structural, life history, and biogeographical attributes of woody plants introduced in North America to determine which traits characterize species that.

First, both high seedling relative growth rate (RGR) and specific leaf area (SLA) are related to woody plant invasiveness. However, the biological basis of this association is still not clear, and detailed studies of causal networks underlying such relationships are badly needed (see Fig. 12 in Grotkopp et al., and Fig. 5 in Grotkopp et al Cited by:   Reichard SH.

Non-native woody species, introduced by humans, can spread into native forests.
