‘Britain is in the grip of an alien invasion’ was how the national press responded to Japanese Knotweed, while some people eat it like spinach and researchers describe Knotweed hysteria as ‘absurd’. Here, the award-winning environmental journalist Fred Pearce offers compelling evidence to dispel exaggerated fears surrounding ‘footloose species’ of flora and fauna, explores the new scientific thinking about foreign versus native species, and considers how the aliens might be ‘exactly the shot in the arm that real nature needs’.
