What is ecosystem balance?
 

 

Which reduction factors and which growth factors impacted ecosystem balance in Episode 1?
 

 

Based on Episode 1 and the assigned readings, describe how invasive species might impact the natural selection of the native species within a habitat? Describe how native and invasive species affect the flow of energy in an ecosystem?
 

 

Describe four possible solutions to the Grass Carp invasion problem. Describe one advantage and one disadvantage for each possible solution.
 

 

As you learned in Chapters 5 and 6, the flow of energy, species interactions, and natural selection change over time. Since ecosystems and species are in flux, why should humans strive to restore and maintain ecosystem balance? Provide one outside example to support your points on why humans should strive to maintain ecosystem balance.
