Part I According to Executive Order 13112 an invasive species is defined as non-native to the ecosystem under the consideration and whose introduction causes or is likely to cause an economic or environmental harm or to harm the human health. Invasive species can be considered animals, plants and other types of organisms. A few examples of invasive plants in my region are the Ailanthus altissima (P. Mill.) Swingle also known as the “tree- of –heaven”, Lonicera japonica Thunb known as the “Japanese honeysuckle”, and for one that generally does not pose a threat that would be the Rosa laevigata Michx known as the “Cherokee rose”. When it comes to the endemic species this would be one that is restricted to a specific area. This could also be plant, animal, fungus, or even a microorganism. While researching the endemic species I found that the Model Cave Harvestman is a close relative to the spider and is only known to exist in the Great Basin Nation Park. This was first discovered in the Model Cave in 1971.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
