Pollinators Threatened by Invasive Plants

"Invasive non-native plants have been found to reduce pollinator abundance and diversity, and disrupt pollinator services to some native plants, which could reduce seed production. Although our knowledge is still limited on the effects of invasive plants on pollinator abundance and diversity, and pollination of native plants, several studies have been conducted that answer some of those questions. Results of these studies will further our understanding of the influence of plant-pollinator interactions on native plant communities threatened by invasive plants." article by
