Some nonnative species degrade native ecosystems because they are able to reproduce and displace native species.
Pollinators like bees, flower flies, and butterflies, provide an essential ecosystem service that most wild plants and animals depend on.
Changes in plant distribution, abundance, and phenology are valuable indicators of current and past environmental and climate factors.
