Abstract

Erigeron sumatrensis Retz. (Compositae), a recently recognized invasive alien species in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Abstract

Erigeron sumatrensis Retz. is native in South America, widely naturalized in Europe and has been recently recorded in Bosnia and Herzegovina. During the period of 2019-2020, it was recorded at 35 new localities in South Herzegovina and Central Bosnia. On the basis of the number of populations and the numbers of individuals within populations, we assume that this species is now invasive in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
