Biological invasions are numerous in fresh waters around the world and the number of alien species in freshwater ecosystems will increase in the future as new aliens are moved outside of their native ranges by humans, and as established aliens fill their potential ranges.
Cell phone-induced failures of visual attention during simulated driving.
The data suggest that the impairment of driving performance produced by cell phone conversations is mediated, at least in part, by reduced attention to visual inputs.

Abstract: The diversity of life in headwater streams (intermittent, first and second order) contributes to the biodiversity of a river system and its riparian network. Small streams differ widely in…
Mollusks as ecosystem engineers: the role of shell production in aquatic habitats
It is suggested that shell producers should not be neglected as a targets of conservation, restoration and habitat management.
Changing Perspectives on Pearly Mussels, North America's Most Imperiled Animals
Pearly mussel research has begun to benefit from and contribute to current ideas about suspension feeding, life-history theory, metapopulations, flow refuges, spatial patterning and its effects, and management of endangered species.
Long-term sodium chloride retention in a rural watershed: legacy effects of road salt on streamwater concentration.

Model results suggest that the increase in streamwater concentration and export was likely due to a lag effect of long-term road salt use and subsurface buildup.
Training for attentional control in dual task settings: A comparison of young and old adults
The authors examined whether the learning and performance of dual tasks by young and old adults could be enhanced through training. Adults were trained with either a fixed-priority or…
Transformation of Freshwater Ecosystems by Bivalves
The functional importance of bivalves, especially in fresh water, is still not fully appreciated and some species are economically important pests, fouling water intakes and other structures.
