Caption

Invasive and non-invasive plants. Illustration of the differing impacts on an ecosystem (seen in the background) of invasive (left) and non-invasive (right) garden plants. Periwinkle and pampas grass are invasive, while star jasmine and pink muhly are alternatives that are not invasive. Invasive species often lack natural predators, compete with native species, and threaten indigenous wildlife. The non-invasive plants support the biodiversity of the local ecosystem, rather than threatening it, providing a habitat for birds and other wildlife. These scenes show an ecosystem in California, USA. For the separate scenes, see images C028/6527 and C028/6528.
