Threat: Problematic Native SpeciesEdit

Definition Edit

Harmful plants, animals, or pathogens and other microbes that are originally found within the ecosystem(s) in question, but have become “out-of-balance” or “released” directly or indirectly due to human activities. Examples include overabundant native deer, overabundant algae due to loss of native grazing fish, native plants that hybridize with other plants, and plague affecting rodents.

It is a bit of a judgement call as to when a species becomes "problematic" (aka outside its natural range of variation). This category should be refined over time. (CMP)
