Question 1 (3 marks): What question have you chosen? 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, 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, herbivory.
Has the introduction of the invasive European green crabs (Carcinus maenas) and their predatory
habits had a deleterious impact on the native blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) population in British
Colombia, Canada?
Question 2: Type out the references for five, relevant, primary research journal articles using
the format found in the journal Ecology. They should be listed in alphabetical order by the
author’s last name.
