Review of the efficiency and efficacy of existing legal instruments applicable to invasive alien species, 2001: p. 31 (Alien species (synonyms: non-native, non-indigenous, foreign, exotic): a species, subspecies, or lower taxon introduced outside its normal past or present distribution; Invasive alien species: an alien species whose establishment and spread threaten ecosystems, habitats or species with economic or environmental harm); Naturalized species: alien species that reproduce consistently and sustain populations over more than one life cycle without direct intervention by humans (or in spite of human intervention))
Wikipedia, Mar. 2, 2010: Introduced species (An introduced, alien, exotic, non-indigenous, or non-native species, or simply an introduction, is a species living outside its native distributional range, which has arrived there by human activity, either deliberate or accidental.) Invasive species (The first definition expresses the phrase in terms of non-indigenous species (e.g. plants or animals) that adversely affect the habitats they invade economically, environmentally or ecologically. The second definition broadens the boundaries to include both native and non-native species that heavily colonize a particular habitat. The third definition is an expansion of the first and defines an invasive species as a widespread non-indigenous species. This last definition is arguably too broad as not all non-indigenous species necessarily have an adverse effect on their adopted environment)
