The spread of invasive plant species and their impacts on plant communities have received international attention as global trade and global environmental change enhance the colonization and establishment of introduced species and threaten the integrity of native ecosystems. Because introduced species vary in their impact, studying the relationship between invasion and native communities is necessary to guide allocation of finite management resources. In this study abundance and distributional pattern of Agave sisalana surveyed in settlement areas and agricultural sites showed high significance levels in formation of clamps using T-test analysis, while comparison of natural area using One – Way ANOVA showed no significance levels in the formation of clamps.
