The invade of alien species - also known as invasive species - is a global issue that should be eminently aware of but often neglected and misconceived as insignificant. There are a variety of possible causes of invasive species found in a non-native environment, but most probably, invasive species are "domestic aliens" that are escalated by people deliberately to new habitats within large nations and between islands. Invasive species are nonindigenous plants and animals from a foreign environment that were forcefully permeated into an outlandish habitat, threatening native wildlife and ecosystems. They are causing negative impacts in numerous ecosystems, pushing many inhabitant plants and animals to the brink of extinction. It is a treacherous
As students we have learned in school that every animal and plants can be species. The definition of invasive species is an alien species whose introduction does cause an economic harm or harm to human health. (Sarah Zielinski,2011) My own interpretation of invasive species would be animals or plants from another region of the world that don’t belong in their new environment. Invasive species are introduced into an area through ship waters, accidental release, and also by humans. Invasive species can have harmful effects to the environment such as, affecting the ecosystem; limiting biodiversity; and using resources available to the existing habitats.
In Hawaii, feral cats are considered nuisances. Often, they wander into yards and areas they are unwanted, such as parks or yards. They hunt our natural wildlife, especially rare species of native Hawaiian birds. Despite the harm they cause, feral cats are in danger themselves. Putting down these animals is inhumane, yet for the wildlife’s safety and the feral cats’ own, it is imperative for their populations to decline.
Then the people released the Burmese python as pets in to the wild of their growth rate. It became a threat to the Florida everglades. Once these python roamed the everglades they destroyed everything. This is why people of the everglades are in so much danger. However, in the meantime of the people letting these pythons a loss in the wild it has become a danger to the ecosystem.
One of the greatest threats to the Mojave Desert is the use of Off Highway Vehicles (OHV’s). This paper will argue the relevant reasons why OHV’s should be banned in the Mojave Desert as well as many other desert environments. There have been many studies done that show the negative affect that OHV’s have on the Mojave Desert and other deserts. Many environmentalists believe that they should be banned completely from the Mojave Desert because of the many effects on the natural environment. “OHV’s disturb the ground, vegetation, and wildlife” (Lawton 1).
These cures scientists are finding aren’t even aimed to help animals, and they live horrible lives as a result of these confining living spaces in addition introduction to diseases they wouldn’t naturally develop. Gruesome treatment is endured by these animals and it needs to be prevented. All types of animals can have different reactions to the tests, and it doesn’t give a clear answer on how the treatment will work on humans. “Physiological reactions to drugs vary enormously from species to species. Penicillin kills guinea pigs, but is inactive in rabbits; aspirin kills cats and causes birth defects in rats, mice, guinea pigs, dogs, and monkeys; and morphine, a depressant in humans, stimulates goats, cats, and horses” (Animal Testing is a bad science” 1).
A species is considered to be an exotic species once it has been brought into an area that it was not established in previously by humans, either by accident or intentionally (Richardson et al. 2000, and Alston and Richardson 2006). Once a species has been brought into a new area, it is only if that species can create a large number of offspring that can survive far away from the parents whether humans try to interfere or not can it be considered to be an alien invasive species (Richardson et al. 2000). Contributing factors for seed dispersal Invasive plants that can use birds as their main form of dispersal are the species that can quickly become problematic (Gosper et al.
In the United States alone, more than one million animals die every year from chemical, drug, or cosmetic testing. Is our vanity really worth the inhumane suffering of millions of animals around world? Just like my photo of monkeys being restrained and forced to participate in unjust testing? Animal testing in cosmetics should be discontinued because animals ' lives are being wasted, animals will not always have the same reactions as humans, and there are so many other alternatives that are more beneficial than testing on animals. However, there is an abundance of animal testing happening today that only leads to the high demand of animal lives.
This is very abrupt since Red Pandas are protected in China, India, Bhutan, and Nepal. They are victim to habitat loss from deforestation or humans’ clear-cutting of their nature ecosystem. You’d think that we would stop clear-cutting their ecosystem after we learnt that they are endangered, however their natural ecosystem is still diminishing as more of their ecosystem is lost to logging and to the ecosystems’ alteration to agroecosystems. Habitat loss and fragmentation are causing the loss of red panda nesting trees and bamboo that the red panda consumes. Logging and other forms of ecosystem damages have caused a disruption or disturbance in the equilibrium of the ecosystem and have given an advantage to the seasonal monsoon; allowing it to hurl rich soil down mountainsides.
Scientist have found many solutions for bird overpopulation. The first huge problem involving bird poop, is destruction. The birds urine and poop are very acidic. The white component of the poop is called Uric acid. The low water level the birds have is what makes the poop so concentrated and damaging.
