A plant growing where someone doesn't want it. Generally people notice "weed problems" when ecosystem function gets damaged, and the succession level falls to the point where desirable plants have trouble reproducing. "Weeds" then move in as part of nature's process for healing damaged land. If we kill weeds, that lowers the succession level even further. Desirable plants have a harder time reproducing, and weeds gain a bigger advantage. If instead we create conditions that favor desirable plants (using managed grazing, adding organic matter, etc.), succession will soon rise too high for weeds, and the plants we want will gain the advantage.
