We usually think of an invasive species as taking over its environment, at the expense its native counterparts.  

But a new study from the University of Wisconsin Madison’s Center for Limnology challenges that assumption.  It compiled survey data from a variety of studies on aquatic species, and finds that most of the time aquatic invasives keep a pretty low profile.  WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski sat down with Gretchen Hansen, lead author on the study.
