Summary
The kudzu vine can grow up to one foot per day. The African land snail thrives in manmade environments and devistates crops. Zebra mussels proliferate in polluted waters, clogging pipes and ship works; however, the mussels also act as water filters, removing and digesting pollutants. These and 17 other invasive "super species" are profiled in this color-photo-illustrated reference for general readers. Each chapter describes a species' lifecycle, its adaptation to environments that have been impacted by human activity, and the species' negative effects on the environment and human endeavors. But the book also describes each species' positive effects as well, emphasizing their potential for bringing the ecosystem back into balance and curing disease. Hamilton has written other books on wildlife. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
