Abstract

Botanists have always been at the forefront of invasion biology, from early observations to contemporary hypothesis testing with modern tools. Plants have distinct advantages as experimental systems that have and will allow botanists to address novel questions in invasion biology. By embracing invasion biology as a field and leveraging our knowledge, historical resources, and new technologies, the botanical community can continue to revolutionize our understanding of invasive species.
