This chapter reviews what is known about those invasive alien species that impact on the terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems of South Africa. It briefly reviews the pathways by which these species have arrived, how these pathways have changed over time, and how many have become invasive. It then considers the current levels of understanding with respect to impacts, both ecological and economic. This is followed by an account of the prognosis for the growth in these impacts should current trends continue.
