- 9 August 2013
It is demonstrated that the economic and environmental impacts of NIS in low and middle-income regions can be considerable and that further measures, such as the adoption of regional risk assessment protocols to inform decisions on prevention and control of N IS in Southeast Asia, could be beneficial.
Global Introductions of Crayfishes: Evaluating the Impact of Species Invasions on Ecosystem Services
- D. Lodge, A. Deines, Yiwen Zeng
- 5 November 2012
Recent research advances such as predicting invasiveness, predicting spread, improved detection and control, and bioeconomic analysis to increase cost-effectiveness of management could be employed to reduce future losses of ecosystem services.

Estimates of true freshwater crab diversity including likely numbers of undescribed taxa suggest that the field remains largely in a “discovery” phase.
Citing practices in ecology: can we believe our own words?
Analysed how misprinted citations are propagated through the scientific literature and concluded that as many as 80% of all cited papers are not read by the authors citing them, however this result is most probably an overestima-tion.
A re-analysis of the data in Sharkey et al.’s (2021) minimalist revision reveals that BINs do not deserve names, but BOLD Systems needs a stronger commitment to open science
- R. Meier, B. Blaimer, D. Yeo
- 29 April 2021
It is illustrated that many of the BINs described as species are unstable when the available data are reanalyzed, reiterate that COI mostly measures time of divergence, and that BOLD Systems violates key principles of open science.
The collision of the Indian plate with Asia: molecular evidence for its impact on the phylogeny of freshwater crabs (Brachyura: Potamidae)
Aim We used molecular data to answer the following questions: (1) Is morphology‐based (and to some extent, geography‐based) classification of the freshwater crab family Potamidae congruent with a…
The alpheid shrimp genus Potamalpheops Powell, 1979, (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Alpheidae) from Southeast Asia, with descriptions of three new species
One of these, P. amnicus, is a true freshwater species while the other two are mangrove-dwellers, which represents the first record of Potamalpheops from Southeast Asia.
Tropical cyanobacterial blooms: a review of prevalence, problem taxa, toxins and influencing environmental factors
