Podcast: How species can turn invasive in the same ecosystem

Sudipta PodcastFruit flies selected for dispersal evolved traits — increased aggression, exploration and activity — which together is more likely to make them more invasive, IISER Pune researchers have found. In response to climate change and habitat destruction, there is an increasing possibility for the evolution of these traits in organisms selected for dispersal. This will lead to native species becoming more invasive in the same ecosystem.
