1. Sure does resemble bamboo... Giant Reed/Cane, [i]Arundo donax[/i]
2a. Three countries? Native to: Egypt, Turkey, Iraq?,
2b. US, Cuba, Japan?
3. Asexually through vegetative propagation (series of rhizomes underground)
4. Used as fuel, to make instruments, and construction; importation of mediterranean insects
5. Prefers wetlands and grows in areas with arsenic, lead, and cadmium; it is adapted to wildfires and photosynthesizes like many other plant species

Hello,
I am a student at Torrey Hills Elementary. Since we have a fairly small team (and build events are especially popular) we did not do Invasive Species while it was a test event. If you guys had any information to offer, that would be great (as to the format of tests, etc...)
Thanks a lot!

1. Identify scientific and common name.
2. Where is it native? (Looking for four seas and an ocean)
3. How did it get transported into non-native territory?
4. Where do they prefer to live?
5. How do they survive in non-native territory?
and 6. Where did they most notably invade in the US?
