A species that did not originally live in an area. Usually, members of the species are released by humans and they figure out how to live and reproduce in the new area. Rock Pigeons (city pigeons), European Starlings, and House Sparrows are all introduced species in North America and other continents.
Any species introduced by human agency into a geographical region outside its natural range. The term includes non-established (‘alien') species and established non-natives, but includes hybrid taxa derived from introductions (‘derivatives') (Eno et al, 1997).
organisms that have been brought into an area in which they do not naturally occur. Introduced species can compete with and cause problems for native species. Introduced species are also called exotic, non-nativeand alien species.
Species whose existence in a given region is due to human action or activity; this activity has led to its dispersal across natural geographic barriers, and/or has produced conditions favorable to its growth and spread.
A non-indigenous or exotic species that was intentionally or accidentally transported and released by humans into an environment outside its historical range.
(also known as non-native, exotic, or alien species) Species that humans transport to an area that was previously outside of that species' geographic range. Introductions may be intentional, such as with domestic animals like sheep and dogs, or unintentional, such as with rats and other pests that live on ships.
Species which have been intentionally or inadventently brought into a region or area. Also called exotic species.
an animal or plant that is not native to an area but has been accidentally or purposefully brought to the area by humans
a plant or animal ) that is not native to the place or area where it is consideredintroduced and instead has been accidentally or deliberately transported to the new location by human activity
a species (plant or animal) that is not native to the area where it is found and has been accidentally or deliberately transported to the new environment by human activity
a type of animal or plant brought into a place from somewhere else
another term for an alien species, exotic species or non-indigenous species.
organisms that are not native to an area but have been accidentally or purposefully brought to the area by humans
A species occurring in an area outside of its historically known natural range as a result of intentional or accidental dispersal by human activities. Also known as alien species.
A species not part of the original fauna or flora in the area in question
a species brought into an area where it does not naturally occur, and able to survive and reproduce there; loosely used for species from outside Australia.
A species that is not native to an area and is brought in by human intervention
a species that does not naturally occur in an area. Also called alien, exotic, or non-native species, these invaders can cause major problems for native plants and animals.
a nonnative species that was intentionally or unintentionally brought into an area by humans.
a species that is not native to a particular area.
Species brought into a country from another country
An organism that has been brought into an area, usually by humans, where it does not normally occur. Introduced species often compete with and cause problems for native species. Introduced species are also called exotic, nonnative, and alien species. See also invasive species, native species.
Species of plants or animals that are not native to Australia (also referred to as exotic or alien species).

An introduced species (also known as naturalized species or exotic species) is an organism that is not indigenous to a given place or area and instead has been accidentally or deliberately transported to this new location by human activity. Introduced species can often be damaging to the ecosystem it is introduced to. A list of introduced species is given in a separate article.
