ShaLamar Glover National American University Environmental Science Invasive characteristics: not native to a specific location, has a tendency to spread, ability to live off of a wide range of food sources, rapid reproduction, high tolerance of environmental conditions. White-spotted jellies are found, tropical waters of the western Pacific Ocean. Zooplankton are the main source of food for the white-spotted jellies. They can disrupt the entire ecosystem of an area by consuming almost all the plankton. Swarms of white-spotted jellies have impacted ecosystems in the Gulf of California, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea. This causes a serious threat to the balance of the marine ecosystem. The problem caused by the White spotted jellyfish, has become worse due to their forced migration to the Gulf of Mexico. White spotted jellyfish may have been trapped in the ballast tank of a naval vessel and was transported to the Gulf of Mexico. In times of low salinity these jellyfish exhibit loss of their zooxanthellae.

    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.
