Invasive Species: Worms
(Amynthas agrestis, Amynthas tokioensis and Metaphire hilgendorfi)
The three species of invasive jumping worms eat large amounts of leaf litter, changing the soil composition of forest floors, gardens and agricultural fields. Jumping worms can displace native insects and animals and make soil less favorable for plant growth.
