Welcome to the Hotel Invasivore?
We recently came across an article from a hotel industry blog this summer that served up an interesting perspective on what they called the "invasivore food trend" and we couldn't help but detect some irony as we thought through their pitch.
Would hotel guests discover foods from their native homes on the invasivore menu?
Does it change our perception of invasive species to think of benign members of our own communities wreaking havoc on another ecosystem?
Since biological invasions are driven by the ever-increasing frequency and speed of human movement around the globe, can we find humor in the fact that the travel industry would consider taking up the mantle of invasivorism?
