Is invasion success explained by the enemy release hypothesis
Given the complexity of processes that underlie biological invasions, it is argued against a simple relationship between enemy ‘release’ and the vigour, abundance or impact of NIS.
Propagule pressure: a null model for biological invasions
It is concluded that propagule pressure should serve as the basis of a null model for studies of biological invasions when inferring process from patterns of invasion, and ‘propagule biases’ may confound current paradigms in invasion ecology.

The Ecological Society of America recommends that the federal government take the following six actions: use new information and practices to better manage commercial and other pathways to reduce the transport and release of potentially harmful species, and establish a National Center for Invasive Species Management.

Characterised and projected economic costs associated with nuisance NIS in Canada, through a combination of case-studies and an empirical model derived from 21 identified effects of 16 NIS, totalled $187 million Canadian (CDN) per year.
A neutral terminology to define ‘invasive’ species
An invasional framework based on current models that break the invasion process into a series of consecutive, obligatory stages is synthesized and a neutral terminology based on this framework is proposed, which can be used to supplement terms with ambiguous meanings and improve clarity of future studies.

Dreissena fouls a wide array of submerged substrates including rock surfaces, macrophytes, native molluscs, canal and dock walls, and watercraft and motor outdrives, and is exploited by a host of predators, most notably waterfowl, fish and crayfish.
Popularity and Propagule Pressure: Determinants of Introduction and Establishment of Aquarium Fish
Clear relationships exist between frequency of occurrence in shops and likelihood of introduction and of establishment of aquatic species and larger fish may be released more frequently due to outgrowing their aquaria.
Invasion of Lake Ontario by the Ponto–Caspian predatory cladoceran Cercopagis pengoi
The rapid influx of Ponto-Caspian species into the Great Lakes warrants further study including identification of source populations, mechanisms of dispersal, impacts on recipient ecosystems, and efficacy of ballast water exchange programs.
Molecular resolution of the family Dreissenidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia) with emphasis on Ponto-Caspian species, including first report of Mytilopsis leucophaeata in the Black Sea basin.
BACKCASTING AND FORECASTING BIOLOGICAL INVASIONS OF INLAND LAKES
Human introduction of nonindigenous species constitutes a serious threat to many ecosystems, particularly lakes. Recent attempts to predict invasions have focused on the supply of propagules of…
