  invasive species的文章里出現的第二類昆蟲:Red imported fire ant.


  Red imported fire ant 火蟻

  本地棲息地:South America

  運送模式:Soil in ships

  侵略范圍:Southern United States (1930s, mainly 1950s)

  也會出現在:Australia, Taiwan, China, and the Philippines

特點01.進攻性體現在咬人

  aggressive with a painful bite


  [aggressive: An aggressive person or animal has a quality of anger and determination that makes them ready to attack other people.]


  02建筑材料隨著土壤運送到美國

  construction materials delivered to the U.S along with soil, a comfortable way to travel

  [deliver: If you deliver something somewhere, you take it there.]


  03.數量增長很快且轉移它們的殖民地

  multiply quickly and move their colonies, a tremendous problem for homeowners, businesses, schools, and farmers

  [colonies: a group of animals of the same type living together; tremendous: We use tremendous to emphasize how strong a feeling or quality is, or how large an amount is.]


  04.降雨量多的季節,會隨著積水飄進房屋、汽車和樓房,并給人帶來傷害

  heavy rain periods, float for months, move into homes , autos, and buildings, and attack people

  火蟻給人帶來的危害,從它的特性我們可以深刻感受到。但是這個危害的罪魁禍首,還是人類自己。Construction material的運輸來源于人類的世界貿易、經濟需求和交通發展。正如我們本期文章的丟第一篇invasive species提到的,要從辯證的思維看問題。Global trade可以給人類帶來經濟的快速發展,但是同時也會帶來災害性的影響。至于如何減弱或者消除這種現象,目前沒有兩全其美的辦法。只能通過科技的發展和人類保護環境意識的提高,來盡量避免這些損失。
