In short, the Asian carp can out-compete a whole spectrum of the native species, plants and animals alike, found in the Great Lakes, causing many species to diminish.

The newspaper article and primary journal articles chosen in this report only confirm the severity of this threat.

    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.
