Nonnative’, ‘nonindigenous’, ‘alien’ or ‘exotic’ refers to a species or race that does not occur naturally in an area, i.e. it has not previously occurred there.


Introduction of nonnative species can cause detrimental ecological impacts. Detrimental impacts of nonnative species on native biota have occurred through competition, predation, herbivory, habitat alteration, disease and genetic effects (i.e. hybridization). There are potential effects on genetic biodiversity as well as species biodiversity.


For example: It depends on what kind of character organisms have. If it’s like carnivorous then it affect lower organism. It’s all depends on which kind of species it is, but it increase competition for other organism.
