This chapter focuses on nonnative plants of California. Nonnative plants are those species introduced to California after contact with humans from the Old World a few hundred years ago, as a direct or indirect result of human activity. The chapter begins with a historical overview of the arrival of nonnatives and lists the places of origin for California's naturalized species. The patterns of distribution of nonnative plants and their environmental impacts are also examined. The chapter furthermore describes efforts to control nonnative invasive plants and to restore California's native habitats.
