Homogecene is a term used to describe the current era of global biological “flatness.” With the introduction and establishment of tough generalist species, biological borders fade and once distinct habitats grow increasingly similar. The Hudson River Valley has a centuries-old history of trade and commerce in which new plants and animals have been introduced. In this wallpaper, endemic plants are intertwined with “hidden” species which pose the greatest threat to the Hudson River Valley transforming it into a homogeneous environment.
