What are invasive species? How do they harm the local ecosystem?

Invasive species are non-native species that harm the local ecosystem by harming its animals, plants, soil, or people. They harm the ecosystem by unbalancing it, as they may not have predators and can become pests.

How are invasive species introduced to new areas?

Invasive species are often smuggled to new areas or released as pets.

What role do predators play in balancing an ecosystem?

Predators help balance an ecosystem by preying on other species, preventing any one species from dominating the ecosystem.

How does competition for resources affect an ecosystem?

Competition for resources in an ecosystem ensures that no single species dominates and allows for a diverse and balanced ecosystem.

Why are less diverse ecosystems more susceptible to diseases?

Less diverse ecosystems have a smaller range of species, making it easier for diseases to spread and affect a larger proportion of the ecosystem.
