Does this have anything to do with Plants for People, or People and Plants?

For another lens on this, see - as a topic - the global migration of species under "invasive species".

"Invasive species" are those simply new to an ecosystem - such as cane toads in Australia or Japanese Knotweed in North America.

I live at the approximate center of the Knotweed invasion, and my backyard has 70 or 80 feet tall trees completely enveloped by Knotweed - which is fairly similar to Kudzu and grows about as fast.

There must be some economic use for the stuff.

Anyway....... ( sorry for the derail )
