Biodiversity plays an important role within our ecosystem, the greater the biodiversity of a certain species it will guarantee natural sustainability. The research topic of our proposal is to comprehend the biodiversity of invasive plants by recognizing and noticing changes in the local and non-local plant tests taken throughout the late winter. As the amount of invasive plant species increase within our environment the loss of biodiversity starts increasing, which is why we decided to investigate the cause of this and how invasive plants are able to thrive during certain seasons especially during the winter. For our research goal we would like to see how the invasive plants species relate to our surroundings of native plants that’s allowing invasive plants to outcompete one another in the late winter. We are going to be focusing on what type of plant species we can discover and contrast them with how the quantity of species is influenced by the winter season. We will investigate if
