Summary
Taraxacum officinale is one of the most wide-spread weeds of North America, Asia and Europe. On French sub-Antarctic islands, where Taraxacum officinale has been introduced, the disappearance of native plants over wide areas, due to the impact of rabbits and global warming, coincided with a demographic explosion of Taraxacum officinale and other introduced plants, resulting in the homogenisation of plant communities.
