Acta Botanica Malacitana 26 264-276. [English abstract] We have included also some unpublished recent data within this list. The species have been arranged first by their invasive character (from higher to lower). Within the most aggressive, species have been presented by their morphology (herbaceous, woody, and so on). Within species are alphabetically listed. Consideration of `Invasiveness' follows the recent proposal by Richardson, D., Pysek, P., Rejmanek, M., Barbour, M.G., Panetta, F.D. & West, C.J. 2000.
