The road not taken...has fewer invasive plants

This press release from U.C. Davis describes the results of a study published this month in the journal Conservation Biology. Researchers studied a variety of different pathways through natural landscapes, from paved roads to 4-wheel-drive tracks. They found that the more "improved" the road was, the higher the density of non-native plants. Turns out some places really are better off if we just leave them alone.
