Background information and definitions
Invasive plant species can drive large scale changes to habitats. These changes can make habitats less suitable for use by mammal species. Control of invasive or problematic plants might be undertaken to recreate suitable conditions for fauna, including target mammals (e.g. Dumalisile Somers 2017).
