Due: Monday, 12/7/20, 11:10am


In the chart below, you have been assigned an invasive species. For your assigned species, research and answer the questions below to produce a 3-4 page report. Your written report is due Dec. 7th at the start of class. Please submit it on Blackboard. Come to class that day prepared to discuss your species.



Your report should be:

If in doubt, please copy the reference style in the textbook.

You may begin your search using the invasive species databases, but please consult the primary literature and include at least two citations that are published journal papers.
