Annotation: Focusing on brown tree snakes, red fire ants, zebra mussels, and melaleuca trees, the book traces how the pests arrived, the extent of the damage that has been done to their environments, and what is being done to eradicate them. Another excellent addition to the "Scientists in the Field" series, where readers get an up-close look at scientists and careers in science. Glossary, list of websites, and index included.
The author introduces readers to some of the most brilliant minds and promising advances in the war against invasive species. These include a huge array of animals, plants, fungi and microorganisms - all very important for young people to understand.
