population dynamics are caused by the biotic potential of the population and the effects of environmental resistance. When there is min” rel=”nofollow”>inimal environmental resistance impactin” rel=”nofollow”>ing a population, it will exhibit a population explosion. One reason for min” rel=”nofollow”>inimal resistance could be factors that no longer regulate a population (e.g., predator declin” rel=”nofollow”>ine or resource in” rel=”nofollow”>increases). Another reason for a population explosion is the in” rel=”nofollow”>introduction of an in” rel=”nofollow”>invasive species. Invasive species are species foreign to an ecosystem and are not immediately regulated by the environmental restrain” rel=”nofollow”>ints of the particular ecosystem that they in” rel=”nofollow”>invade. This in” rel=”nofollow”>in turn allows their populations to grow seemin” rel=”nofollow”>ingly uncontrolled and to displace other in” rel=”nofollow”>indigenous populations. Examples of such an in” rel=”nofollow”>invasive species in” rel=”nofollow”>into North America are dreissenid mussels, commonly known as zebra and quagga mussels. Their in” rel=”nofollow”>introduction in” rel=”nofollow”>into the Great Lakes has caused economic hardship and a reorganization of the ecosystem. This has led, in” rel=”nofollow”>in part, to pollution-causin” rel=”nofollow”>ing effects that can be lin” rel=”nofollow”>inked to an alga known as Cladophora.
Ecosystems are webs of in” rel=”nofollow”>intricately balanced in” rel=”nofollow”>interactions, what happens when a new species is in” rel=”nofollow”>introduced that uses a disproportionate share of the ecosystem’s resources? Title: Identifyin” rel=”nofollow”>ing Environmental Hazards
