Alliaria petiolata (weed) (Bieb.) Cavara & Grande - (garlic mustard)

The weed is native to Europe and Asia and was introduced into North America around 1850. It has invaded the northeastern and midwestern parts of that continent and has become a serious weed in forest understories. It can form dense stands in decidious forests, shading out other vegetation.

It has various negative effects on the ecology of invaded areas like replacing native species, reducing the abundance of mycorrhizal fungal communities and affecting the native fauna.
