   and south Californian waters. (Grades 6-8, 9-12)

   The Impact of Invasive Species
   In this article by marine biologist Alexandre
   Meinesz, learn how an introduced species can
   impact biodiversity at different levels of

   its dominance, its rate of spread, and its
   persistence. (Grades 9-12)

   Battling Introduced Wildlife
   Read about some of the worst invaders and what
   can be done to stop them in this interview
