Title: Under Siege: Battling Flying Carp and Giant Pythons and How Science Can Help
By: Sharon Gross, Robert Reed and Cynthia Kolar

Over the last several decades, non-native species have continued to invade sensitive ecosystems in the United States. Two high-profile species, Asian carp in the Midwest and Burmese pythons in the Everglades, are the focus of much attention by decision makers, the public and the media. USGS scientists will discuss issues related to invasive species and explain innovative methods used to help detect and control these invaders.
