Invasion of weed into the forest has become the major concern now a day throughout the country. There are several weed species in the forest but Lantana camara, Parthenium hysterophorus, Ageratum conyzoides and Eupatorium adenophorum have spread markedly in a short period of time and affecting the floral and faunal diversity of forest. Several theories are given by different authors regarding the invasion of these weed species beside this, the key factor of invasion are wide geographical adaptability, ploidy level, high reproductive capacity, allelopathic effect etc. which favours the invasion. Control measures such as mechanical, chemical and biological measures are being undertaken to control the further spread to save the rich floral diversity of the forest.
