Alien and invasive plants in natural areas in Israel

Hereafter a list of alien and invasive plants found in natural areas in Israel during my recent research.
The natural areas considered are mainly Nature Reserves, National Parks and open areas in the Mediterranean-climate region of Israel.

One or two original photos of each species are displayed together with:
(1) Information related to the characteristics of the species.
(2) The places where it has been found in Israel.
(3) Its current status according to the terminology proposed by Richardson et al. (2000).
(4) Information related to the introduction, the occurrence and the control of the species in Israel specifically.
(5) The most effective control methods in use.
(6) A brief list of references related to the species.
