Invasive Alien Species

Zhongyu Wang, Lei Zhang & Boris Ivanov

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This report starts from the theory of invasion biology. Several theories would be explained; they are propagule pressure, process of invasion, stages and several management theories which include: biological controlling, chemical controlling, mechanical controlling, eradication and prevention. The most basic and important theories would be talked. Then three case studies about invasive species and their management circumstances would be introduced. Three case studies were chosen representatively of three basic management methods of invasive species, they are:  Hyphantria Cunea in China  Eichhornia crassipes in Florida  Mustela vision This project focuses on the discussion part of three case studies. With the explanation and discussions of three case studies, theories of invasion biology would be revised. The possible improvement of management of three case studies will be explored during the process of revision of the theory part. However, this project explores the answer of the problem of “How could we find a most efficient method to control invasive species?” This follows the perception of using technology of science to integrate society well.
