First is that the species show very high rate of reproduction. The plant species that are invasive have a much higher rate of reproduction than any other species, which raises the second reason why they are so (Coulatti 138). Second is that the species fall prey to little or no predation at all. This fact gives the species leeway to reproduce and not worry about any form of predation. Thirdly, the invasive species are mostly hardy in nature. Being hardy means that the species can thrive in virtually any kind of environment, including different climates and habitats (Coulatti 140).
The impact that invasive species cause on the environment are gross and sometimes irreversible (Verling 272). Destruction of landscape and severe loss of habitats and loss of life by both animals and humans are just but a few of the impacts. The effects the invasive organisms have on the environment include negative impact on bio-diversity, they can cause species extinction, soil erosion and land degradation and change in life cycles of organisms (Verling 273).
The weeds found in lakes and rivers, for example the water hyacinth could cause destruction to water bio diversity. First, the weeds in the water destroy all other plant organisms in the water in order to establish their roots some of them even feed on other organisms. This ensures that the weeds remain the apex plant organisms on these water sources thus getting rid of any chance of bio-diversity in the water sources (Callaway 265).
Second is the cause of species extinction in water sources (Coullatti 57). In order to fish, it is logical that there be something to catch in the water sources. The invasive species make sure that fishing does not happen. They do this by first, as mentioned above, eating up all the plant life in the water and thus rendering the fish without food. This the main reason for fish extinction. Land and soil

According to GMP (2011), the Gulf of Mexico joins maritime ports of five southern American states and six Mexican states with the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The American states include Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Texas and Louisiana while the linked Mexican states include Yucatan, Quintana Roo, Tabasco, Tamaulipas, and Vera Cruz.
Development in these lands is restricted; it is purposely set aside for human recreation and pleasure, and to protect the animals and the environment. In the United States, Yellowstone National Park was among the first parks to be established in 1872. The protection and the conservation of the national parks in the U.S.
-The endangered species face problems at the hands of nature. -They also face the problem at the hands of human beings. -Endangered species are important to us as they can provide many benefits. -They also have an effect on the whole environment and mostly concern with the stabilization of the ecological systems.
Monaco is a state in Europe that borders on France and the Mediterranean Sea. The state is well known as a popular tourist destination due to the mild climate, attractive scenery and wide range of gambling facilities. The largest impact that tourism has had on Monaco is the economic impact.
It is the vector of several viruses including those causing dengue. It has spread from Southeast Asia to North and South America, Europe, Africa and Australia through the transportation of tires. Several attempts have been made to control it but all have failed but there is a promise in genetic engineering in order to manipulate this species whose genetic make-up easily mutates.
They usually burrow below the sand and in many instances they use them as hideouts. Its feeding habits are well known. The snail is carnivorous in nature and it is also a preparatory creature. Its main diet is mainly
These turtles are one of the oldest species which has seen the evolution and extinction of dinosaurs.
Green sea turtles have scales on their bodies like many other reptiles. Their green color is because of the algae or limu they
es of disease is still unknown but the origin can be traced back to piling of benign mutations leading to hyperplasia which in normal circumstances are suppressed by tumor suppressor genes. Prevention of the disease is not possible but early diagnosis and surgical removal along
