Invasive Species as an alien species which becomes established in natural or semi-natural ecosystems or habitat, an agent of change and threatens native biological diversity. A Comprehensive and exhaustive study on alien plants existing in Poondi stream of Kodaikanal region for about 9.5 kilometer from Poondi dam to Kumboor village was undertaken for a period of 24 months from January, 2015 to December, 2016.By the current research work, it was recorded that a total of 51 alien species belonging to 45 genera distributed among 28 families of angiospermic alien species. Among 51 species of alien, dicotyledons were represented by 41 species of 36 genera belonging to 22 families and monocotyledons by 10 species of 9 genera belonging to 6 families. This paper concluded that impact of invasiveness created by these alien species should controlled by planting native species into the natural forest area.
