Non-native species are widespread and abundant in California grasslands. This chapter provides an overview of the nature of these invaders, their distribution within California, factors influencing their abundance, and their impacts in the grassland ecosystem. It also reviews the impacts of plant pathogens in California grassland. Evidence suggests that pathogens may influence and mediate interactions between native and non-native plant species.
