As the world becomes more connected, exotic species are increasingly introduced into places they should not occur. The problems caused by these invasive species can vary from annoyance to the displacement and destruction of native habitats. From the nuisance of dandelions and thistle, to the destruction by gypsy moths and Japanese beetles, this exhibit features plants and insects that have changed the landscape in North America.
This display also features the colorado potato beetle, a species native to North America that was introduced with detrimental consequences into Europe. All specimens are fully labeled and presented in a 16×12" display.
