Time to Embrace Exotic Species?

Our Changing Urban Nature: Time to Embrace Exotic Species? (Or at Least Some of Them)

Nice article on how the nature of cities is changing the way we look at what are exotic or invasive species, and how much effort we should put into removing them. Ivy establishes a monoculture and prevents forest succession, so we’ll always fight that. But even knotweed might have its virtues (shocking, I know).
