Research and write a 1 to 2 page single-spaced page about an invasive species (flora or fauna)
YOU CANNOT USE ASIAN CARP OR TOOTHY PIKE AS YOUR INVASIVE SPECIES.
Directions: Research and write a 1 to 2 page single-spaced page about an invasive species (flora or fauna) that was introduced because of a short term gain for a human and became a nightmare in terms of the long term interests of the ecosystem. Include in your paper: The name of the species, a description of the species, how the species was introduced (which caused the tragedy of the commons), the area affected by the species, predators to species (if any), the destruction on the physical environment and disruptions to other species and how the species is trying to be contained. See the rubric below for details.
Sources you can use for your paper include but are not limited:
1) The United States Department of Agriculture National Invasive Species Center
2) National Wildlife Federation
