Group Member 2 – Native species (all points!) Group Member 3 – Introduced species (all points!) Group Member 4 – introduced species (all points!) Remember the focus of the post is to find articles and other sources on the ecology of one of your groups’ chosen species. Optional: you can add fun tidbits on the medicinal use or other uses of your species, but it does not fulfill this assignment! Your post must include the following information in your own words, please see the “How To Cite Sources” page for more information.
