Natalia Kirichenko said: „In September 2019, Ljubljana (Slovenia) hosted DETECTION AND CONTROL OF FOREST INVASIVE ALIEN SPECIES IN A DYNAMIC WORLD international conference within LIFE ARTEMIS European project under the supervision of (Dr Maarten de Groot. Among other topics, they discussed early detection and prevention of the spread of invading species and the improvement of existing approaches. To reveal the challenges and development the potential of the early detection and rapid response system, we studied the cases of four alien species spreading in Europe – two animals (the grey squirrel and the emerald ash borer), a plant (the pokeweed or Phytolacca americana), and a phytopathogenic fungus (Geosmithia morbida) infecting walnut trees,“ External link

Natalia Kirichenko noted: „Invasion of the three other species damage both the environment and the economy, and some even threaten human health. For example, the phytolacca is a bright ornamental plant native to North America, loved by European gardeners. This species turned out to be easily adaptable and undemanding to living conditions. Now the phytolacca breaks free from gardens and penetrates the wild as a weed wherever possible – on vacant lots, near human habitation, under fences, and along roads. Unfortunately, this plant is very toxic and hazardous to both humans and animals! In the plant, not only the stems are poisonous, but also the leaves and fruit. Trying the seductive-looking phytolacca berries, a person risks dying from heart and respiratory failure. Animals – horses, sheep, and cattle – also suffer, as they can be poisoned if they eat fresh or mowed pokeweed that has fallen into hay,“ External link
