A common invasive species in Southeastern Canada is the Cynanchum rossicum, also known as the dog-strangling vine. It is known to cause severe infestation in the natural vegetation of young to mid-aged forests and plantations in the Toronto region. Cynanchum rossicum is also a major threat to rare plants such as tallgrass, oak, savannahs, alvars and other related species.
