Invasive plant questions (please reply quickly)
I certainly hope this is the right place to post this. If not, forgive me. Ever since I became aware of invasive non-native plants, a few questions have remained unanswered. Let's say you introduced a plant to an area where it never existed before. It becomes invasive, due to the lack of diseases and predators to keep it under control. Here's my questions: In many years to come, wouldn't the native environment gradually adapt to compete with the invasive plant? Wouldn't the invasive plant gradually develop diseases and predators in the new environment? And lastly, wouldn't the invasive plant gradually adapt to the native environment, and start coexisting with native plants, and become harmless? If anybody can help me, it would be appreciated.
