Animals Invasives

Animal Invasives

Introduced animals arrive in their new environments without their natural predators, competitors and pathogens that would otherwise control their population numbers. This allows them to establish self-sustaining populations and spread significantly to the point where they are considered to be invasive. Animal invaders include vertebrates and invertebrates, parasites and pathogens and are found in a wide range of environments such as terrestrial, freshwater, marine and in the soil, they can be hosted in humans, plants or animals.
