The climate change could affect invasive species by increasing or decreasing their chance of establishment, or drives native species away increasing their competitiveness. The climate change can impact the distribution of the invasive species by influencing spreading to new areas. The impact on current species after climate change is the typical concept of how species invade and break down ecosystems in many aspects. Each of these consequences can be beneficial to the planning of management solutions. It provides strength to the concept of preservation management and that the support for each of the consequences is vast.
Biology HSC Course- Search for Better Health- Critical Response Essay “Quarantine in Australia has been highly effective in preventing the spread of disease and exotic plants or animals into or across this country” Introduction As Australia is isolated by oceans, it has been able to avoid the spread of disease very well. However as barriers between nations become less and trade and travel increase, the problem of preventing the spread of disease increases. The spread of animal and plant disease in Australia costs Australia both economically and environmentally. Some diseases have costed Australia Billions. An example of plant disease quarantine in Australia is Black Sigatoka.

GMOs What is a GMO? A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a virus, bacterium, or more complex life-form in which the DNA has been altered for a particular purpose. Some of these purposes include: research into the nature of genes and biological processes, manufacturing animal proteins, correcting genetic defects, and making improvements to animals and plants (Natural Environment Research Council). Making improvements to animals and plants is a major motivation to produce GMOs. With a world population on its way to 9 plus billion by the year 2050, a viable option for sustenance production is needed.

Since the 1970s scientists and researchers have worked on finding a new and improved way to produce more efficient and abundant crops through the use of genetic modification. This new wave of genetic engineering has swept the world’s food production industries as it has taken root in the corn, canola, cotton, and soy industries rapidly. Although the use of genetically modified organisms in food additives have not been on the market long enough to induce regulations, modern research has found food additives to have a detrimental results on health and the environment due to their unpredictable nature, allergen producing qualities, and their injurious effects on animals and other species. Genetic modification is a method used to change the makeup of a cell’s genes or genetic material to make it compliant with another species’ genetic information. These new gene combinations are not found in nature and therefore affect the gene pools of many surrounding organisms.
