As per Executive Order 13112 an "invasive species" is defined as a species that is:1) non-native (or alien) to the ecosystem under consideration and2) whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health.Invasive species can be plants, animals, and other organisms (e.g., microbes)
