Study of few exotic/alien plant species of dicot families and their economic importance

Aleya Siddiquee and Md. Sarfaraz Ahmad


A non-native plant or animal species is referred to as an exotic species in biology. It is brought into an environment where it does not naturally occur. The species' arrival could be intentional or unintentional. It is not always regarded as unpleasant or obtrusive. Bihar's flora has been significantly altered as a result of the purposeful and unintentional import of alien species from all over the world. In view of this, we make an effort to study the alien/exotic species of Dicot families of Gopalganj, Bihar. In current research we surveyed twenty invading plant species based on data collected from traditional practitioners, forest areas, old men, farmers, and householders. Scientific name, popular name, family, behavior, nativity, components used, local usage, and chemical composition were used to classify the twenty species. Following the survey, we determined that exotic species represent a serious impediment to the world's economy's smooth operation.
