  • Invasive Species: An Invasive Species

    What is an invasive species? According to the National Invasive Species Management Plan, an invasive species is defined as “a species that is non-native to the ecosystem under consideration and whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health”. Invasive species will look like they belong in the environment they are taking over, however, more than likely they are over-powering a native species in their own habitat. Would you be able to identify one of the species I’m about to discuss? North America has more than twenty-nine hundred invasive species in our environment today. I will begin by describing 2 invasive plants and then 2 invasive animals that are invading our natural species. First we have the invasive grass called “Cheatgrass”, which is scientifically known as Bromus Tectorum L. Cheatgrass was introduced into the…

  • Are Humans Unique Species

    To what extent are Humans a Unique Species? We like to believe that humans are a superior species, highly intelligent and beyond the realms of the animal kingdom, however, are we really as unique as we like to think, what makes us so special? It was once believed that humans were the only animals capable of using tools, and this is what made us no longer just ‘animals’.

  • Chapter Summary: The Origin Of Species

  • Invasive Species

    Invasive species are easily comparable to the explorers of the old days. Explorers could be helpful by introducing new supplies, like horses, during the big Columbian Exchange. Explorers could also be largely negative, bringing disease and slavery into the nations they conquered. Explorers sometimes just set up trade relations and left well enough alone. Much like these explorers, invasive species have the propensity to help, hurt, or assimilate into their new surroundings. Experts on invasive…

  • Speciation: Evolution Of Biological Species

    evolution of biological species this is according to the Sage’s English dictionary and thesaurus. It is the continuous change in the genes of an existing specie until a formation of the new specie arise altogether. It is a result of two specie groups ceasing to share allele such that the genetic differences grow to the point of speciation. Many scientists have come up with different theories in an attempt to define and explain speciation, though different they all agree that for an organism to…

  • Pandas: Endangered Species Conservation

    that need our protection to ensure their survival in the wild. Standing from one point of view, the pandas are an endangered species which once desperately needed funds and resources to save themselves from the brink of extinction. They also helped to raise the awareness of animal conservation worldwide. Opposing this viewpoint, some see the pandas as furry black-and-white money pits, who were already on the brink of extinction, but somehow managed to divert the much-needed funds from the other…

  • Exotic Species Reproduction

    When looking at the data provided, the trends of native-species increase in the restored area and the abundance of exotic species seen in the degraded areas provides an idea of how effective the restoration efforts where at restoring them to the reference site. To begin, the data provided in table 5 gives an idea of the distribution of the number of species found at each site, and how much of a contrast is shown between the restored and degraded areas and how they compare to the reference site.…

  • Dangers Of Invasive Species

    “Invasive species” refers to an ‘alien species’ whose introduction ‘does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm, or harm to human health.’ Although this is a species that is not native to a particular ecosystem, it is important to realise that not all non-native species are invasive. A ‘native’ species is one which is found within a particular region. An invasive species has the potential to influence a wide range of areas, including; environmental, economic and social factors.…
