Modification of fire regime
Modification of nutrient regime
Modification of successional patterns
Monoculture formation
Threat to/ loss of endangered species
Threat to/ loss of native species

Source? likely to be reintroduced: 

Meadow fescue may have already reached much of its potential range. The species is not currently favoured as a pasture grass outside of Europe. If improved cultivars are developed, it may experience resurgence in popularity, and could become more common in some regions where it is now rare.

Info Blurb: 

Can form monocultures, reducing biodiveristy
