[-empyre-] invasive species

Thank you for this reply; I agree of course. The problem is that 
ecosystems are incredibly fragile and not well-understood (look at the 
researching going on in relation to our own microbiomes), and species 
don't often adapt; they died off and this can lead to serious chain 
reactions. I hope that artists are more sensitive to these issues than, 
say, agribusiness that just overrides everything. By the way the fastest a 
species has been wiped out apparently was over a day on a remote 
lighthouse, by an imported lighthouse-keeper's cat that killed off a bird 
that nested only on the island.

Thanks again, Alan
