Pest plants, or weeds, have attributes that enable them to out-complete other species. They may produce prolific amounts of seed, spread vegetatively, grow rapidly and are often unpalatable to livestock or wildlife. These characteristics allow them to dominate some sites and displace many indigenous plants, contributing to a severe decline in biodiversity and loss of agricultural productivity.
