Question 1 (15 marks): List five questions that would be suitable for a research proposal on the
ecology of biological invasions. Be sure to include i) which invasive species you will study
(Latin and common names), ii) the specific geographic location where the study would take
place (or where the species is invasive), and iii) the specific ecological question that you will
investigate. The specific native species (Latin and common names) that the invasive species is
interacting with should also be included (if appropriate), and it is often useful to include a
mechanism in the question that indicates the ecological relationship or type of interaction
between the native and invasive species, e.g. predation, competition, alteration of the habitat.
Example: Does herbivory by the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) regulate the
abundance of the invasive plant garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) in deciduous forests of
southern Ontario, Canada?
1) Do invasive parasitic wasps (Oobius agrill) contribute effectively in regulating the
invasive emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) form infesting native ash trees
(fraxinus) in Southern Ontario, Canada?
2) Does the introduction of the invasive Artic fox (Vulpes lagopus) contribute to the loss of
the Aleutian crackling goose (Branta hutchinsii leucopareia) in the Alaskan Islands,
3) Does the invasive round goby’s (Neogobius melanostomus) eating habitats in the Great
Lakes, Canada, affect the respawning capabilities of the native smallmouth bass
(Micropterus dolomieu)?
