Cabomba caroliniana is considered an aggressive aquatic invasive species, and there is much interest in determining the source of introduced populations. Using chloroplast DNA sequences and genome size variation, our research presents evidence to suggest that the movement of C. caroliniana into Canada is from populations in the northeastern United States, and less likely to be from commercial sources. We discuss several possible pathways of introduction for C. caroliniana across North America.
