Introduction of new species in an ecosystem leads to

A

Amensalism

B

Competition for resources

C

Symbiosis

D

Better development

Answer

Introduction of a new species in an ecosystem raises the interspecific competition. The competition is because of the limited amount of resources in the ecosystem for which species compete. An introduced new species is known as an exotic species. For example, the introduction of Nile Perch caused the extinction of local Cichlid fish.
So, the correct answer is 'Competition of resources'.
