El hombre es uno de los mediadores centrales para la dispersion y desarrollo de las especies invasoras, como por ejemplo introduciendo deliberadamente salmonidos en los rios patagonicos para fomentar la pesca deportiva, o generando condiciones optimas para el establecimiento de especies exoticas como en el caso de la maleza oreja de raton Hieracium pilosella. Del mismo modo, los comportamientos aceptados culturalmente favorecen el desarrollo de estas especies y su impacto en la biodiversidad, como por ejemplo cuando aceptamos que nuestros gatos domesticos realicen excursiones fuera de nuestra casa donde pueden depredar sobre la avifauna nativa.

In contrast with the reference plot, these plots are grazed by sheep and have had significant modification of their vegetation, from dominantly tall tussocks of the genus Chionochloa to depleted short tussock and herbfield vegetation with the invasion of rabbits and the exotic weed Hieracium pilosella. It is thought that the each of the degraded plots had once been in a similar initial vegetation state as the reference plot, given the well documented evidence of widespread Chionochloa in the area after the arrival of the Maori (Treskonova 1991; McGlone and Moar 1998; McGlone 2001).
