Alien invasive plants are becoming a major concern, during past two decades, among conservationists. Now it is an established fact that Invasive alien plant species have caused extensive economic and ecological damage world over. Many of the exotic plants are of economic benefit also, due to which some alien species, often cultivated, may provide food, medicine, fuel, or fodder to local communities. The present paper discusses the status of invasive plant species in the roadside areas in the… Expand
