"Invasions of nonnative plants into southern forests continue to go unchecked and unmonitored. Invasive nonnative plants infest under and beside forest canopies and occupy small forest openings, increasingly eroding forest productivity, hindering forest use..., and degrading diversity and wildlife habitat." — James H. Miller, Nonnative Invasive Plants of Southern Forests
