PostSubject: 3. Introduced species can disrupt   03/03/09, 10:57 pm

o Introduced species- any organism that was brought to an ecosystem as the result of human actions
o Introduced species can throw off the ecosystem’s balance
EFFECT ON NATIVE SPECIES-
o Animals- Python brought to US as pets, released back into wild, now killing endangered bird species
o Plants- Kudzu. Nuff said.
ECONOMIC DAMAGE-
o Mice spread on British ships, now eat crops in Australia and cost farmers $65 million in lost revenue
