Mooney and Cleland. 2001 The evolutionary impact of invasive species

PNAS 98:54465451



1.       If invasive species are increasing species richness and diversity, are they bad?

2.       Is extinction the primary outcome for native species when invasive species arrive?

3.       Pick your favorite invasive species and tell me:

a.       How do you think it is altering evolutionary processes

b.      What kind of experiment could you do to test your hypothesis
