    During the 1800s, packs of wolves roamed through Yellowstone National Park. However, by the end of the 1920s, most of the wolves had been killed by hunters. Scientists spent years wondering about the effects of the lost population of wolves on Yellowstone’s ecosystem.

    In 1995, scientists decided to add wolves back into the Yellowstone environment. Some thought the wolves would bring good changes to the large population of elk―a kind of deer―and low population of beavers in the park. But not everyone agreed. Some worried that the population of elk might suffer and nearby livestock might be in danger.

    Argument 1: Wolves are good for Yellowstone. Wolves help prevent certain animal groups from overpopulating.

    In a food chain, the population of animals is affected by the diets and behaviors of other animals. When one animal, such as the wolf, disappears, many other animals in the chain can be affected. When the wolves were gone, an important predator for elk was also lost.

  • SC IENCE

    Wolves are predators who feed on elk. As a result, the population of elk became too large. They did not move around as much because they were no longer afraid of wolves. When a large number of elk stayed in one place too long, they ate too many willow plants. Beavers also need willow plants to eat and to build dams. With few willow plants left to help beavers stay alive during winter, the population of beavers began to shrink.

    After wolves were reintroduced into the park, they helped keep the population of elk at a healthy level. The wolves also helped keep the elk on the move so they did not completely ruin the willow plants. With a high number of willow plants, the population of beavers grew again. Ed Bangs, a wildlife expert, believes that “Wolves mean food” for everyone.

    Argument 2: Wolves lead to problems. Not everyone is happy about the wolves being

    back in Yellowstone. Many hunters are upset. Wolves have killed more than twice as many elk than scientists guessed they would. Some people are afraid that the wolves will eventually kill all the elk, leaving none for the hunters. Ranchers near Yellowstone worry that the wolves will kill their livestock. People

    are concerned that the wolves would hurt their chances of having food and of making money. Some hunters and ranchers have asked the courts for help to stop the wolf project in Yellowstone. Their problems with wolves are chronic.

    To address these concerns, some have suggested getting rid of the endangered species label for wolves. This label means that an animal is in danger of becoming extinct or dying out and needs government help to stay alive. Other solutions include giving states control over the number of wolves and to allow for wolf hunting seasons during certain times of the year.

    There is no easy solution. When figuring out what to do, people must work to balance the best interests of the animals, the environment, and the humans who live there.

    Unit 5 • Show What You Learned 87

  • 1 Bringing wolves to Yellowstone is good for the ecosystem because —

    A it would provide another source of food for elk

    B it would control the populations of elk

    C it would let the elk stay in one place

    D it would offer a way to shrink the numbers of willow plants

    2 Based on the information in the selection, you can infer that “’Wolves mean food’ for everyone” in paragraph 4 means that —

    F hunters should be able to hunt wolves

    G wolves should be able to feed on livestock

    H elks have more food available

    J beavers have more food available

    3 The Greek root chron- means “time.” In paragraph 5, what does chronic mean?

    A continuing for a long time

    B ending soon

    C quickly approaching

    D starting and stopping over a certain period of time

    4 Why is paragraph 5 important to the author's claim that wolves lead to problems?

    F It explains why wolves are important to the ecosystem.

    G It tells what the problems are.

    H It gives specific solutions to the problems.

    J It helps readers understand what "endangered" means..
