Ageratum conyzoides (herb)
Dogra and colleagues (2009) found that the number of herbs decreased sharply (as compared to other life forms) in the A. conyzoides-invaded areas. Results showed that herbal vegetation was affected maximally as compared to other vegetation types. Major medicinal plants affected by the invasion of A. conyzoides were Murraya koenigii, Dichanthium annulatum, Cynodon dactylon, Trifolium repens, Achyranthes aspera, Adhatoda vasica and Carissa carandas (Dogra et al. 2009).
