ecosystems. Please ensure that you adapt the generic meaning of
each of the aspects to the specifics of the ecosystem(s) you are
Write an essay in which you evaluate whether the expansion or project was an EBM success or failure. The essay should
be approximately 2000 words (± 200 words),
begin with a concise abstract (1-2 paragraph overview to the topic, research conducted and conclusions),
use sound research to support the analysis and equally sound reasoning in arguing whether the expansion or project was an EBM success or failure,
summarize your findings in a concise conclusion,
be supported by a minimum of nine sources (and at least three of these must be a peer reviewed academic journal article), and
