Speeding natural selection in the name of conservation

Earth is facing a catastrophic extinction event, and to avoid this we need to think differently about species conservation
The genetic backburn
A new study is proposing a radical method for limiting the spread of an invasive species, like cane toads or tramp ants: introducing more of them.
