Geographical expansion of the invader Caprella scaura (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Caprellidae) to the East Atlantic coast
It is confirmed that the populations of C. scaura are effectively established, with high densities and reproducing females during the whole year, and significant correlation was found between female size and number of eggs in the three populations, but egg size did not vary with female body length.

The composition of the caprellidean communities was clearly different between exposed and sheltered areas, and caprellid species belonging to 5 genera were morphologically characterised by large size, elongate body somites, a short basis of gnathopod 2 and short pereopods.

Smaller specimens of P. ferruginea had the greatest growth rates in comparison with the bigger specimens, therefore the potential ability to adapt in a new habitat was higher for small specimens immediately after removal, and growth rate progressively stabilized over time.
Aspects of reproduction and their implications for the conservation of the endangered limpet, Patella ferruginea
The results of the present study increase the maximum length for males by double that cited in previous literature and highlight the importance of strictly protecting females (i.e., most of the largest individuals, >60 mm), since their population percentage is very low, in order to develop adequate strategies to preserve the species.
