Worldwide, the restructuring of ecosystems by invasive species is one of the top three causes of biodiversity loss. This course explores the biological causes and consequences of invasive species. We will also consider the role of humans in spreading invasive species and the efforts in managing them. The course will focus on case studies, including invasive species threatening Ithaca’s own natural lands, to examine what is known, what is not known, and what we can do about these problem species.
