I believe that greater reflection should be made on alien species. In my opinion, the hypothesis on which to work, should be to put the aliens more in relation with the weakening of the ecosystem structure caused by direct or indirect human actions. In this perspective, we could call the invasive allochthones “foreign opportunists”. Many examples could be given of how the resilience of a given ecosystem, if healthy or restored, allows the return to the original state, after an event has perturbed it, such as that of an invasive species (or at least that we think is to be attributed to this). In such cases, the alien species may disappear or remain completely resized.
