1. Scientific and common name
2. Where is it a native species?
3. What phylum is it in?
4. Where is it invasive?
5. Mode of life?
6. What measures have been taken to stop it?

Yes! Aren't non-vertebrate chordates fascinating?

This is Cogongrass/Imperata Cylindrica. It was used as packaging equipment, forage, and for erosion control. It is invasive to southeastern US/Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. It is native to Southeastern Asia and Eastern Africa. It spreads its seeds with the wind(the seeds can blow for miles around).

And BTW for Asian Carps, do we need to know all of them? (There isn't a thread for Invasive Species).

What is the binomial nomenclature and common name? Where is this native to and where has it spread? Ways to make it extinct? And why did it infest Crofton Pond in Maryland? (Last Question) What is so unique about this so that is doesn't die easily?
[i]Channa Micropeltes[/i], Giant Snakehead or Giant Mudfish, Native to Southeast Asia, Spread to various places in the United States including Wisconsin, Maryland, and Virginia, Not sure on how to make it extinct... possibly introduce natural predators? (That could cause other problems, though), released pet into pond to be introduced, Not quite sure... is it the ability to move onto land and breathe air?

It is Channa Argus not Channa Micropeltes and it is the Northern Snakehead. And also we can eat it out of existence(It is a Chinese classic soup I think). Except, if you don't eat it and release it into lakes in the case of Crofton Pond, it will multiply and kill out all the other fish in the lake.(I did my research in my free time.)Edit: The soup is drank after you have gone through a surgery and other ways they kill this fish is they put a chemical in the lakes(they don't want it spreading to other lakes)

Okay- I'll try to remember that. 8-)

Here's mine:

What is the binomial nomenclature of this organism? Is it an omnivore, herbivore, or carnivore? Where does it originate? Why is it considered an invasive species?
