Biological invasions are a worldwide threat to biodiversity. Invasive species can affect biodiversity in many ways, such as by altering habitat properties and structure to which native species are dependent. Recipient communities that have mutualistic interactions with invasive species, such as seed dispersal mutualistic networks, are more vulnerable to invasion.
