A short note on invasive species 

Regular readers know I was in Hawaii last week. I took a quick detour on the way home to visit my sister in Dillon, Montana, a beautiful five hour drive from Salt Lake City. It so happens she is a biologist, and an expert in invasive species. Unfortunately, we did not discuss this story, which suggests a potentially yummy solution to the problem.

Some invasive species are more equal than others.
