Invasion of Coastal Marine Communities in North America: Apparent Patterns, Processes, and Biases
Overall, the emergent patterns reflect interactive effects of propagule supply, invasion resistance, and sampling bias, and the relative contribution of each component re...
Global Invasions of Marine and Estuarine Habitats by Non-Indigenous Species: Mechanisms, Extent, and Consequences'
It is clear that non-indigenous species are a significant force of change in marine and especially estuarine communities globally and studies of marine communities that do not include NIS are increasingly incomplete.
Distinguishing between terrestrial and autochthonous organic matter sources in marine environments using fluorescence spectroscopy
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 estuarine…
Predicting the impact of introduced marine species: Lessons from the multiple invasions of the European green crab Carcinus maenas
The colonial ascidian Didemnum sp. A: Current distribution, basic biology and potential threat to marine communities of the northeast and west coasts of North America
Global spread of microorganisms by ships
It is shown that the global movement of ballast water by ships creates a long-distance dispersal mechanism for human pathogens and may be important in the worldwide distribution of microorganisms, as well as for the epidemiology of waterborne diseases affecting plants and animals.
BIOTIC RESISTANCE TO INVASION: NATIVE PREDATOR LIMITS ABUNDANCE AND DISTRIBUTION OF AN INTRODUCED CRAB
The hypothesis that the native predator Callinectes sapidus provides biotic resistance to invasion and prevents the southward spread and establishment of Carcinus maenas is supported.
Fish and ships: relating dispersal frequency to success in biological invasions
A comparison of two ballast sampling methods suggests that fishes have been undersampled in ballast-water studies, including the authors' own, and that the role of ballast transport in promoting fish invasions has been underestimated.
THE IMPACTS OF A NONINDIGENOUS MARINE PREDATOR IN A CALIFORNIA BAY
The impact of the nonindigenous green crab, Carcinus maenas, on a coastal marine food web in central California is measured and it is found that this predator exerted strong “top-down” control, significantly reducing the abundances of several of the 20 invertebrate species monitored over a 9-yr period.
