An invasive species can be any kind of living organism—animals, plants, insects, even fungus or bacteria, seeds or eggs—that is not native to a particular ecosystem or environment, causing disruption or harm to that ecosystem. This can be seen as interference or damage to the physical surroundings, food chain, the economy, or even human health. In many cases, this disturbance can lead to irreparable harm, with devastation to other species of plants or animals, including extinction.
