Eradicating invasive species sometime threatens endangered species. An example to understand the complex systems involving humans and nature
The California Clapper Rail depends on invasive salt marsh cordgrass as a nesting habitat
Study results show that slowing down the process of eradication of the salt marshes is better than moving as fast as possible. This will give the birds time to adjust to the natural recovery of the system and will provide appropriate habitat for the endangered species. The recovery of the endangered species is therefore dependent on the eradication of an invasive species.
