Invasive species can severely impact native habitats with overwhelming numbers and no apparent limitations by habitlabat or other species. My research investigates the extent of limiting factors on invasive species populations as well as observes interactions between native and invasive species within a community. What sort of controls, if any, do invasive species face in foreign habitats? Do they benefit from mutualisms with other invasive species? How do they impact the native community? I am currently studying ant populations in order to grasp a better understanding of these questions.
