Exotic Invasive Plants

420-320 (CNRE-105NP) Economically, exotic invasives cost the United States over $120 billion annually (Pimentel et al. 2005). Costs arise from decreased productivity and expenses associated with control efforts. Exotic invasives come in all shapes, sizes, and kingdoms. There are exotic invasive mammals, fish, insects, crustaceans, mollusks, bacteria, fungi, plants, and viruses. This publication will focus on exotic invasive plants. Virginia has over 90 species of exotic invasive plants. DS, color, staple upper left, 4 pages
