Should we try to control invasive species or should we let them be? On the one hand, invasion biologists state that invasive species are infesting cropland and rangelands, choking streams and waterways, destroying significant habitat for wildlife species, affecting the availability of resources and the chemistry of water, and even altering the food web. Representing another point of view, David Theodoropoulos will describe his analysis of invasion science, the true causes of invasion, the many ecological benefits of invaders, and the exploitation of invasion fears by herbicide manufacturers. He will present integration biology, a new science of these species.
