SANTA CRUZ ISLAND, GALAPAGOS, ECUADOR - MAY 2006: Scientist Frank Sulloway swings a machete at a sauco plant (cestrum auriculatum) as part of a project to remove invasive plants from Santa Cruz Island in Ecuador's Galapagos Islands. The Galapagos have been plagued with invasive plants which spread incredibly fast in the islands' fragile ecosystem, choking out native species. (Photo by Eric Rorer/Aurora) (releasecode: rorer_0008)
