Reduced condition factor of two native fish species coincident with invasion of non‐native Asian carps in the Illinois River, U.S.A. Is this evidence for competition and reduced fitness?
Non-native, Asian carps bighead Hypophthalmichthys nobilis and silver Hypophthalmichthys molitrix have been present in the Illinois River since the early 1990s. The Long-Term Resource MonitoringExpand

A mark-recapture population estimate for invasive silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) in the La Grange Reach, Illinois River
Invasive silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) populations have expanded greatly in the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS) since their introduction in the early 1970s. We conducted aExpand

Fish community and food web responses to a whole-lake removal of coarse woody habitat
Abstract As lakeshores are developed, property owners often thin the riparian forest and remove older logs or fallen limbs from the adjacent littoral zone. This practice alters fish habitat andExpand

Invasive bighead and silver carp effects on zooplankton communities in the Illinois River, Illinois, USA
Abstract Aquatic invasive species introductions are a global environmental concern. Negative effects of invasive species are often manifested in alterations of food web structure and throughExpand

Whole-lake influences of littoral structural complexity and prey body morphology on fish predator–prey interactions
We used a longline tethering method to examine the relationship between prey refugia, prey body morphology and the location and magnitude of predation mortality within an individual lake and amongExpand

Prospects for Fishery-Induced Collapse of Invasive Asian Carp in the Illinois River
ABSTRACT Invasive Asian Carp are threatening to enter Lake Michigan through the Chicago Area Waterway System, with potentially serious consequences for Great Lakes food webs. Alongside efforts toExpand

In-situ tests of sound-bubble-strobe light barrier technologies to prevent range expansions of Asian carp
Bighead (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis [Richardson, 1845]) and silver (H. molitrix [Valenciennes, 1844]) carps (collectively, Asian carp) have invaded the Mississippi River Basin and successfullyExpand

The influence of littoral zone coarse woody habitat on home range size, spatial distribution, and feeding ecology of largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides)
Coarse woody habitat (CWH) may be a critical feature of lakes that influences fish distributions, movement patterns, and feeding habits. We used radio telemetry to examine the role of CWH inExpand

Restriction site-associated DNA sequencing generates high-quality single nucleotide polymorphisms for assessing hybridization between bighead and silver carp in the United States and China.
Bighead carp (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis) and silver carp (H. molitrix) are invasive species and listed as US federally injurious species under the Lacy Act. They have established populations in muchExpand

Diagnostic SNPs reveal widespread introgressive hybridization between introduced bighead and silver carp in the Mississippi River Basin.
Hybridization among conspecifics in native and introduced habitats has important implications for biological invasions in new ecosystems. Bighead (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis) and silver carp (H.Expand
