Alien plants and animals of Mtunzini - Global : To show the alien species of the coastal area of southern Zululand from the Tugela River to Port Dur
To show the alien species of the coastal area of southern Zululand from the Tugela River to Port Durnford. These include both plants and animals of terrestrial, wetland and estuarine habitats. Most of the species originate in other continents - but the list includes South African species that did not originally occur in this area. One such plant is the Raphia Palm which is indigenous to Kosi Bay, but not this area. This Raphia palm is showing the typical traits of an invasive species - spreading rapidly and displacing the natural plants of the swamp forests in which it grows.
