Invasive plants are flora objects that are outside their natural range. Their distribution and abundance pose a threat to the life or health of citizens and to the conservation of biological diversity. They can also damage some sectors of the economy. The most prominent representatives of the invasive plant species, widely distributed in the territory of Belarus, are Canadian goldenrod and Sosnowskyi’s hogweed.
Canadian goldenrod is an allergenic plant. Spreading in meadow and riparian ecosystems it violates the structure of crops and leads to oppression and even complete displacement of native plants.
Sosnowskyi’s hogweed is a flowering plant up to 3 meters in height. It is dangerous for humans because its juice causes burns.
In Belarus the plant grows on field edges and roadsides. There it almost completely displaces native vegetation.
