Lonicera maackii (weed) (Rupr.) Herder - (Amur honeysuckle)
The weed is a woody shrub that was introduced from Asia into eastern North America in 1896 as an ornamental and for stabilizing the soil. It has now invaded many part of eastern and central North America where it can form dense monoculture thickets in deciduous forests, replacing native vegetation. Densities can reach 6,000 plants per ha and the plants grow up to a height of 6 m with a stem diameter of up to 10 cm. The seeds are transported by birds and deer.
