When you hear someone bubbling enthusiastically about an exotic species, you can safely bet the speaker isn’t an ecologist. This is a name for a resident of an established community that  was  deliberately  or  accidentally moved from its home range and became established elsewhere. Unlike most imports, which can’t  take hold outside their home range, an exotic species permanently insinuates itself into a new   community.
Sometimes the additions are harmless and even have beneficial effects. More often, they make native species endangered species, which by definition are extremely vulnerable  to extinction. Of all  species on the  rare or endangered lists or that recently became extinct, close to 70 percent owe their precarious existence or demise to displacement by exotic species. Two examples are included here to illustrate the  problem.
During the 1800s, British settlers in Australia just couldn’t bond with the koalas and kangaroos, so they started to import familiar animals from their homeland. In 1859, in what would be the start of a wholesale disaster, a northern Australian landowner imported and then released two dozen wild European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus). Good food and good sport hunting – that was the idea. An ideal rabbit habitat with no natural predators was the reality.

Six years later, the landowner had killed 20,000 rabbits and was besieged by 20,000 more. The rabbits displaced livestock, even kangaroos. Now Australia has 200 to 300 million hippityhopping through the   southern
half of the country. They overgraze perennial grasses in good times and strip bark from shrubs and trees during droughts. You know where they’ve been; they transform grasslands and shrub lands into eroded deserts. They have been shot and poisoned. Their warrens have been plowed under, fumigated, and dynamited. Even when all-out assaults reduced their population size by 70 percent, the rapidly reproducing imports made a comeback    in less than a year. Did the construction of a 2,000-mile-long fence protect  Western  Australia?  No. Rabbits  made it to the other side before workers finished the  fence.

In 1951, government works introduced a myxoma virus by way of  mildly  infected  South  American rabbits, its normal hosts. This virus causes myxomatosis. The disease has mild effects  on  South  American  rabbits that coevolved with the virus but nearly always had lethal effects on O. cuniculus. Biting insects, mainly mosquitoes and flenses against the novel virus, the European rabbits dies in droves. But, as you might expect, natural selection has since favored rapid growth of populations of O. cuniculus resistant to the  virus.

In 1991, on an uninhabited island in Spencer Gulf, Australian researchers released a population of rabbits that they had injected with a calcivirus. The rabbits died quickly and  relatively painlessly from blood  clots in their lungs, hearts, and kidneys. In 1995, the test virus escaped from the island, possibly on insect vectors. It has been killing 80 to 95 percent of the adult rabbits in Australian regions. At this writing, researches are now questioning whether the calcivirus should be used on a widespread scale, whether it can jump boundaries and infect animals other than rabbits (such as humans), and what the long – term consequences will  be.

A vine called kudzu (Puerarialobata) was deliberately imported from Japan to the United States, where it faces no serious threats from herbivores, pathogens, or competitor plants. In temperate parts of Asia, it is a well
– behaved legume with a well – developed root system. It seemed like a good idea to use it to control erosion on hills and highway embankments in the southeastern United States. (A) With nothing to stop it, though, kudzu’s shoots grew a third of a meter per day. Vines now blanket stream banks, trees, telephone poles, houses, and  almost everything else in their path. Attempts to dig up or burn kudzu are futile. Grazing goats and herbicides help, but goats eat other plants, to, and herbicides contaminate water supplies. (B) Kudzu could reach the Great Lakes by the year 2040.

On the bright side, a Japanese firm is constructing a kudzu farm and processing plant in Alabama. The    idea is to export the starch to Asia, where the demand currently exceeds the supply. (C) Also, kudzu may eventually help reduce logging operations. (D) At the Georgia Institute of Technology, researchers report that kudzu might become an alternative source for paper.
