Invasive Species Timeline
Transcript of Invasive Species Timeline
The Japansese Stilgrass was introduced into North America most likely through its use as packing matierial for porcelain.
Invasive Species Timeline
Derek Mendez, Yahinse Tice,Nazeem Dabbs, Marcus Morales, Brandon Pacheco.
Invasive Species are any plants, Fungi,
or an animal Species that is not native to
a specific location. Invasive Species do have
The capability of harming ecosystems and
Zebra are first discovered in the Black, Caspian, and Azov seas. Thaye are not a problem there as this is its native environment which includes its natural predators
A lake in western Massachusetts became infested by Zebra Mussels. Again using up many of the oxygen rescources
Eurasian boars were introduced to North America as early as 1539 as domestic pigs.
Zebra Mussels start to infest the Hudson River.
The major issue with these mussels is they steal the oxygen rescorces for other native species. Limiting the living environment
IN 1877 the invasive species Trapa natans also known as the european water chestnut was brought over from Europe to the Botanical garden labs at Hardvard University to be studied and to have tests taken on the plant.
The first reproducing population in Crofton Pond, Maryland.They were Eradicated when the Maryland Department of Natural Resources poisoned the pond with Rotenone. Whenever the Northern Snakehead enters a new region, it competes with the native species of that region. This is why the Maryland DNR poisoned Crofton Pond.
Somehow the Water Chestnuts held in containment at Hardvard escaped cultivation and were found growing in the charles river in Massachusetts where the plant first began to start to spread and grow in America starting a full scale infestation among the states traveling by water.
Another Northern Snakehead population was found in the hudson river drainage
and the Mississippi River Drainage.
The Agencies for both regions are trying to eradicate them before they spread.
Asian Shore Crab
Asian Shore Crab introduced into New Jersey, they become a huge issue as these crabs have a very large diet. So they start picking of many of the surronding diminent species in the waters.
The water chestnut spread so far that it was able to infect Keuka lake which is one of the finger lakes where it kept spreading and damaging the ecosystem there.
European starlings were released in New York. Eugene Schieffelin, belonging to New York Genealogical and Biographical Society wanted to introduce all the birds mentioned in the plays of William Shakespeare to North America.
The Maryland DNR is starting an event known as the Stop The Snakehead Derby. To raise awareness about the Northern Snakeheads. Also, the Delaware Invasive Species Council states to the public that anyone who catches a Northern Snakhead is Encouraged to kill it.
A worker at the Washingtonpost posts a article known as, "The spread Of Snakhead Fish In The Potomac River Concerns Officials". If this concerns officials, it should concern you.
Driving Question: How important is it to take invasive
Species out of where they're not supposed to be?
