Introduced species seem to rapidly adapt to non-native conditions although founder events may decrease genetic variance and impede adaptation. Cryptic introductions of an invader from different parts of its native range may allow colonization of habitat patches with compatible conditions, or admixture may restore genetic diversity lost during invasion(More)
Open-coast and deep-water ecosystems have been less disrupted by invasion than estuaries, but a notable exception is the establishment of multiple species of the sea slug genus Philine in the northeastern Pacific. These large slugs spread from San Francisco Bay to the whole of the US west coast in 5 years during the 1990s, and are abundant from intertidal(More)
