"Without natural predators to limit their growth, exotic pest plants compete sucessfully with native plant species that have developed a balanced relationship with local predators and pests. They can degrade entire ecosystems by altering natural levels of light, moisture, and soil nutrients, rendering natural areas uninhabitable for native plants as well as animals that depend on native vegetation for food and shelter." — Linda Chafin, Field Guide to the Rare Plants of Georgia
