Invasive species assignment

Invasive Species Assignment

  • Make 2 posters and/or computer charts on 20 Invasive Species

    • 10 Deliberate vs. 10 Unintentional (species listed in textbook)

  • MUST Include:

    • Column 1 = Species NAME

    • Column 2 = WHERE the species is natively found and where it was introduced to

    • Column 3 = WHY, HOW, & EFFECT ( explain how and why the species was introduced whether it was deliberate or accidental and the effect of introduction on ecosystem)

    • Can use species from book or other species if interested in researching other

Things to know

THINGS TO KNOW

  • Ecological and Economic Services of:

    • Marine,

    • Freshwater

    • River

    • Wetland


River services

River Services


Chapter 9 key terms

Chapter 9 Key Terms:

  • Background Extinction rate

  • Biological Extinction

  • Threatened vs. Endangered vs. Extinction

  • HIPPCO

  • Extinction rate

  • Habitat Fragmentation

  • Precautionary Principle

  • Invasive Species


Chapter 11 key terms

Chapter 11 Key Terms:

  • Bycatch

  • Mitigation Banking

  • MPA’s vs. Reserves

  • Reconciliation Ecology

  • Law of Sea Treaty

  • Maximum vs. Optimum Sustainable Yield

  • Aquaculture

  • Riparian Zones


Riparian zones

Riparian Zones

  • Zones of vegetation that surround streams and rivers

  • Act as natural buffer by controlling floods and by filtering and removing many toxins and excess nutrients before they reach waterways

  • Damage can destroy natural stream ecosystems


Topic outline for fishing

Topic Outline for FISHING...

D. Fishing

1. Fishing Techniques

2. Overfishing

3. Aquaculture

4. Relevant laws and treaties


Fishing methods

Fishing Methods

  • Long-line

  • Purse-seine

  • Trawling

  • Drift Nets


International whaling commission iwc

International Whaling CommissionIWC

  • Refer back to Case Study in textbook

  • What is its goal, mission, and how effective is it? What doesn’t it protect?

  • Use scientific research as their excuse to hunt and kill whales


Solutions

SOLUTIONS


Aquaculture refer to handout for details

Aquaculture (refer to handout for details)

  • Farms (i.e. shrimp, bivalves) - Each have Pro’s and Con’s

    • Bivalves and Plants = less consequences

    • Shrimp and Salmon = more consequences

  • Ocean Net-Pens (i.e. salmon, other finfish)

  • BEST Species for culturing = plant eating species

    • Tilapia


Acts and treaties

Acts and Treaties

  • 1975 Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES)***

  • U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972***

  • U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1973***

  • U.S. Whale Conservation and Protection Act of 1976

  • 1979 Global Treaty on Migratory Species

  • 1995 International Convention on Biological Diversity


Laws and treaties previous chapters

LAWS and TreatiesPrevious Chapters

  • Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act

  • Federal Mine Safety and Health Act

  • Energy Policy Act


Marine mammal protection act

Marine Mammal Protection Act

  • 1972

  • Prevents any US Citizen from harassing, hunting, or killing any marine mammals

    • Amended 1994:

      • Program to monitor incidental taking of marine mammals during commercial fishing practice (bycatch regulations)

      • Preparation for stock assessments for all marine in waters under US jurisdiction
