Invasive species [Artificial general intelligence] could invade and affect the dominant species on earth [Homo sapiens] adversely, causing ecological, environmental, or economic damage… and chaos, destruction, death and extinction.

BEWARE: Artificial general intelligence is an alien species in development and could supersede Homo sapiens.

Invasive Species

An invasive species is an introduced species to an environment that becomes overpopulated and harms its new environment.[2] Invasive species adversely affect habitats and bioregions, causing ecological, environmental, and/or economic damage. The term can also be used for native species that become harmful to their native environment after human alterations to its food web. Since the 20th century, invasive species have become a serious economic, social, and environmental threat worldwide.

Invasion of long-established ecosystems by organisms is a natural phenomenon, but human-facilitated introductions have greatly increased the rate, scale, and geographic range of invasion. For millennia, humans have served as both accidental and deliberate dispersal agents, beginning with their earliest migrations, accelerating in the Age of Discovery, and accelerating again with international trade. Invasive plant species include the kudzu vine, Japanese knotweed, and yellow starthistle. Invasive animals include European rabbits, domestic cats, and carp.

Invasive species can affect the invaded habitats and bioregions adversely, causing ecological, environmental, or economic damage.[74]
