Thoughts on invasion vs introduction. Who makes the
decisions? I'm sure that when the TVA introduced Kudzu for erosion
control they thought it was tharmless. Take a drive along any road in TN
and SC and you tell me what whether the decision to introduce didn't become an
accidental invasion that costs an incredible toll. I'm not sure that
scientists, much less, hobbists are always capable or desirous of seeing the
potential for invasion. Nature doesn't need help in deciding sucession of
species. She generally does a pretty good job without our help.
