Invasion of Coastal Marine Communities in North America: Apparent Patterns, Processes, and Biases
▪ Abstract Biological invasions of marine habitats have been common, and many patterns emerge from the existing literature. In North America, we identify 298 nonindigenous species (NIS) ofExpand
Global Invasions of Marine and Estuarine Habitats by Non-Indigenous Species: Mechanisms, Extent, and Consequences'
SYNOPSIS. Non-indigenous species (NIS) are increasingly conspicuous in marine and estuarine habitats throughout the world, as the number, variety, and effects of these species continue to accrue.Expand
Allometric constraints and variables of reproductive effort in brachyuran crabs
Allometric relationships of reproductive output were compared in 20 species from 7 families of brachyuran crabs from the east and west coasts of North America, using regression analysis of logExpand
Non-indigenous species as stressors in estuarine and marine communities: Assessing invasion impacts and interactions
Invasions by non-indigenous species (NIS) are recognized as important stressors of many communities throughout the world. Here, we evaluated available data on the role of NIS in marine and estuarineExpand
Introduced species frequently escape the natural enemies (predators, com- petitors, and parasites) that limit their distribution and abundance in the native range. This reduction in native predators,Expand
Guild structure and foraging impact of blue crabs and epibenthic fish in a subestuary of Chesapeake Bay
Structure and impact of the guild of epibenthic predators foraging on infaunal communities were measured in the Rhode River, a small mesohaline subestuary of Chesapeake Bay. Measures of long-termExpand
Population dynamics and habitat partitioning by size, sex, and molt stage of blue crabs Callinectes sapidus in a subestuary of central Chesapeake Bay
Abundances, size-frequency &stributions, sexual composition and molt-stage composition of blue crabs Callinectes sapjdus were measured during 1983 to 1985 in the Rhode Rver, a subestuary of centralExpand
Evidence for sperm limitation in the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus
Reproductive success of female blue crabs may be limited by the amount of sperm received during the female’s single, lifetime mating. Sperm must be stored in seminal receptacles until eggs areExpand
Shallow water as a refuge habitat for fish and crustaceans in non-vegetated estuaries: an example from Chesapeake Bay
Abundances and size-frequency distributions of common epibenth~c flsh and crustaceans were compared among 3 depth zones (1-35, 35-70, 71-95 cm) of the Rhode River, a subestuary of Chesapeake Bay,Expand
Larval development rate predicts range expansion of an introduced crab
Introduced populations can cause ecological and economic damage and are difficult to eradicate once they have established. It is therefore important to be able to predict both where species mayExpand
