Invasive Species is the current issue for this years Massachusetts Envirothon. "2016 Current Issue Invasive Species Massachusetts has adopted the National Conservation Foundation's 2016 Envirothon Current Issue (sponsored by Ontario Envirothon), "Invasive Species: A Challenge to the Environment, Economy, and Society". Species invasions pose practical natural resource management problems. For over a century, scientists and resource managers have studied the negative impact that new species can have on ecosystems. Successful management efforts have used scientific understanding to control individual invading species as well as to maintain the integrity of ecosystems. This scientific research and science-based management is critically important work. It is taking place in Massachusetts, today.
