Invasive alien species impose one of the greatest biological threats on biodiversity, in addition to affecting ecosystems, native species and human health. Thus, developing accurate, fast and sensitive methods to detect harmful exotic plants is important for plant inspection and quarantine works. Lepidium bonariense L . , an annual Brassicaceae plant native to South America, has naturalized in Taiwan in recent years. Its morphological characteristics are similar to L . virginicum L. and can be… Expand
