Introduction of alien species has led to environmental damage and decline of indigenous species. Give any one example of how it has affected the indigenous species?
- Nile perch introduced in Lake Victoria eventually led to the extinction of an ecologically unique assemblage of more than 200 species of cichild fish.
- Parthenium/Lantana/water hyacinth caused environmental damage and threat to our native species
- African catfish-Clarias gariepinus introduced for aquaculture purposes is posing a threat to the indigenous catfishes in our rivers.
