Summary
The title refers to the group of invasive species that has had much success around the world adapting and thriving in new environments. While some ecologists view invasive species as a threat to biodiversity, others believe they may simply be nature's way of restoring ecological vibrancy in the wake of human-mediated destruction. Are they the new face of the biosphere?
