o Introduced species- any organism that was brought to an ecosystem as the result of human actions
o Introduced species can throw off the ecosystem’s balance
o Animals- Python brought to US as pets, released back into wild, now killing endangered bird species
o Plants- Kudzu. Nuff said.
o Mice spread on British ships, now eat crops in Australia and cost farmers $65 million in lost revenue
