Weekend Blog Blogging  

Some recent interesting invasive species posts in the blogosphere:

  • Myrmecos Blog nicely covers the latest research on imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) from the journal PNAS. The researchers found that the ties between anthropogenic disturbance and the fire ants were strong, with intact forest patches remaining fire ant-free (thanks budak!).
  • Huckleberry Days does introduced doves in British Colombia. Insightful words and some good photos, too.
  • Living the Scientific Life has a great post about new research delving into the origins of the monk parrot (Myiopsitta monachus) invasion, with molecular evidence tying that invasion to the international pet trade.
