      I think, as often happens in biology, researchers asking reasonable questions about the actual impacts of non-native species (i.e., species moved long distances in recent times as a result of human activity) have sometimes packaged their findings and views as a radical challenge to prevailing (sometimes strawman) views because academia rewards this--and the popular press oversimplifies and rewards even further! Of course, the popular press oversimplifies "prevailing views" as well (e.g., confusing "non-native" with "invasive" ).

      The attached PDF from Conservation biology (and references cited therein) give a flavor of this.
