The article explains the urgency and the importance of study of the composition and status of invasive species, growing on disturbed habitats. We’ve evaluated the suitability and vulnerability of various habitats to invasion by alien plant species in Armenia. As a first step of current research, we have separated from all habitats of Armenia habitats directly or indirectly related to agricultural activities. As a next step it was carried out occurrence of invasive species and suitability of these habitats for their further spread. Based on this analysis it will be possible to develop control measures for further spreading of these species and for preventing the invasion into natural ecosystems and based on deepen research understand pathways of invasion in Armenia and adjacent countries.
