Invasive species are taking over native plants’ habitats. Common control methods are dangerous or impractical. Some people are now turning to goats as a nontoxic and versatile way to deal with invasive species. This book looks at the history of using goats to graze plants, why they work, and the research that’s being done to learn more. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Core Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
