Homework #8 (for week 9) NAME 1. Wild turkeys have recently invaded Davis and have made the national news because they attack people and dogs going for walks in a local park (see article in Davis Enterprise , Nov 25, 07). Turkeys were introduced into California by the Department of Fish and Game for sport hunting and they have now spread over much of the state, but hunting, although popular, does not affect their populations. Fossils of wild turkeys (different species than the modern turkey, but similar) are known from California. a. Should wild turkey be treated as a native or alien species? Explain. They should be treated as an alien species. They are not a part of the original community. If they are no longer used as game animals close to residential areas, they should be considered pests. b. What would you recommend be done to wild turkeys that attack people in Davis? I think that they should be killed if they are attacking people. They were intended to be game animals, so they would be serving their purpose.

    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.
