TPO-15 - Integrated Writing Task The cane toad is a large (1.8 kg) amphibian species native to Central and South America. It was deliberately introduced to Australia in 1935 with the expectation that it would protect farmers' crops by eating harmful insec

The passage and the lecture are both about on the native species of toad canes and how its population increase, also, their consequences becomes so address for the people. The author of the reading passage describes that toad cane (which is useful for eating the hazardous insects and transport them from America to Australia), increases in population so massively, that should be stop by external factors. While the professor casts doubt claim made in the article. He thinks that, methods and consequences would be so different. It will easy to think, but more impossible to perform.

Firstly, the author of the passage explains that, by making a huge type of fence, could capture lots of toads from the territory. In contrast, the professor tells us that, through a large rivers and oceans, it is extremely difficult yo catch them.
Secondly, the reading contends that,by hiring the freshmen volunteer, hunting to these amphibian could show decreasing in their species. The speaker rebuts this argument, he states that, untrained hunters would leads to disaster for other species too, because newly ones, have no idea to conduct their work.
Lastly, the article claims that, virus solve this problem easily, toads cane let infected with the certain type of virus, after that they kill automatically. On the other hand, the professor posits that, this technique could not work efficiently, because, bu this method, they are going to damage their originality and natives species, transporting them to America again for further examinations and experiments. Thus, this idea could not make sense.

The reading passage explains about three different methods for controlling the cane toad population in Australia. These include placement of the national fence, capturing and destructing young toad and eggs by volunteers, and using disease-causing viruses. The lecturer contradicts all these ideas and states that these measures are bound to be unsuccessful and will cause extreme damage to the environment.

In contrast to the author, who claimed that the national fence will block the way of advancing toads. The author posits that young toads and eggs can be carried by water currents from one place to another, thereby, making the national fence ineffective.

Secondly, the author states that catching cane toads and destroying their eggs by volunteers through a nation-wide campaign would be a simple method to control their population. However, the lecturer rebuts this by saying that untrained volunteers can actually damage the native frog population also, as they will not be able to differentiate between cane toads and native frog species.

The author of the passage claims that specially designed viruses that selectively cause diseases in the cane toads can help in controlling their population. This specific argument is challenged by the lecturer who states that these viruses will not only cause disease in toads living in Australia but can cause extensive damage to ecosystem by causing disease in cane toads in their native South American habitat.
