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?

1. [i]Hemigrapsus sanguineus[/i]
2. Omnivore
3. Western Pacific; on Asian shores
4. As a non-native species, it competes with local crabs, and consumes native species.

This one should be harder...


Image

1. What are the small brown things on the upper side of the picture; and what organism made them (include all major taxonomic ranks)?
2. Name a country it originates from.
3. What is the plant in the background?
4. What is the beetle doing?
5. Name the binomial nomenclature of the beetle.
6. Back to the "brown things." How do they reproduce?

The wiki came in helpful for this one:
1. These are egg sacs? The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid made them.
2. China
3. a hemlock?
4. sucking sap?
5. Adelges tsugae
6. errmmm, aren't they eggs? asexually?

First of all, there are three kinds of organisms important here. The egg sacs are of the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA). The beetle, which is different from the adelgid, is [i]Pseudoscymnus tsugae[/i], a lady-beetle from Japan that eats only the HWA. It is a biological control introduced to stop/slow the HWA. The plant in the background is a hemlock, I put that there just to check if you got the first question right. The beetle is consuming the eggs of the HWA. Question 6. was kind of vague, but yes, they do reproduce asexually.

1. Kudzu, [i]Pueraria montana lobata[/i]
2. East Asia, All over the south, north, midwest, and northwest United States.(Other countries as well, but I couldn't find a list or map)
3. Livestock eat it, and are used as a biological control
4. Using it as food for animals is cheap and effective; cutting and pulling it out can work but is inefficient; setting fire to it where it is safe even
5. It grows nearly a metre every two days; it covered the entire south in just a few years.

Sorry to interrupt a question marathon, but since there isn't a topic for the event, I'll post here:

I am working on a quizzer (scioly.club/quiz) for Invasive Species and would like to hear feedback from more people doing the event. If you have any features you would like to see added, please let me know and I can work on it.

Very good! If possible, it would be nice to have Correct-Incorrect ratio, a list of which specimens gotten incorrect most frequently (the incorrect ones could appear more often?), although I don't know what is programmable. Still, it helps with IDing :mrgreen: .
