Quotes

"Identifying potentially invasive species prior to arrival is critical as once organisms like the frightening Asian Hornet are here, they can be very difficult to control”, she said."
The researchers believe that the ability to fly or glide is the number one key to bird and mammal longevity. "This effect is so strong that it overshadows all other ecological variables explaining lifespan variation in volant (flying or gliding) species" the researchers wrote. Taking to the skies offers a great way to escape hunters, and it widens foraging and settlement opportunities
...For example, Tenzin Gyatso , the Dalai Lama, wrote in an op-ed piece in the New York Times, "If science proves some belief of Buddhism wrong, then Buddhism will have to change."
The chair of the committee, Joan Walley MP, said: "The growth of international trade and travel means more non-native plants and animals are being introduced into Britain than ever before and as our climate changes more species are likely to find a foothold here. Not all of these species will become invasive, but the ones that do can harm native wildlife, clog up our waterways, cause costly problems for homeowners and sometimes even harm human health."
