abstract] We have included also some unpublished recent data within this list. The species have been arranged first by their invasive character (from higher to lower). Within the most aggressive, species have been presented by their morphology (herbaceous, woody, and so on). Within species are alphabetically listed. Consideration of `Invasiveness' follows the recent proposal by Richardson, D., Pysek, P., Rejmanek, M., Barbour, M.G., Panetta, F.D. & West, C.J. 2000. Naturalization and invasion of alien plants: concepts and definitions. Diversity and Distributions 6: 93-107. (environmental weed, naturalised)
