The ‘killer shrimp’ Dikerogammarus villosus (Crustacea, Amphipoda) invading Alpine lakes: overland transport by recreational boats and scuba‐diving gear as potential entry vectors?
The alien freshwater amphipod of Ponto-Caspian origin, Dikerogammarus villosus, also known as the killer shrimp, is recognized as being one of the worst invasive alien species in Europe, representingExpand

Microsporidian disease of the invasive amphipod Dikerogammarus villosus and the potential for its transfer to local invertebrate fauna
Invasive species may introduce novel pathogens to a colonised area. Most of the time emerging pathogens are detected a posteriori, but recognition of a priori emergence of an invasive disease by hostExpand

Europe-wide reassessment of Dictyocoela (Microsporidia) infecting native and invasive amphipods (Crustacea): molecular versus ultrastructural traits
Microsporidia are common parasites infecting animals and protists. They are specifically common pathogens of amphipods (Crustacea, Malacostraca), with Dictyocoela spp. being particularly frequent andExpand

Attachment ability of two invasive amphipod species may promote their spread by overland transport
Amphipods are very successful invaders in European inland waters including lakes. There are several vectors identified as responsible for amphipod species introductions and spread, with overlandExpand

Reproductive traits and conservation needs of the endemic gammarid Laurogammarus scutarensis ( Schäferna, 1922) from the Skadar Lake system, Balkan Peninsula
Abstract Europe is one of the global hotspots of freshwater amphipod diversity with a number of endemic species, yet many of European freshwater ecosystems are under extreme anthropogenic pressure.Expand

Echinogammarus trichiatus (Martynov, 1932) — a new Ponto-Caspian amphipod invader in Poland with remarks on other alien amphipods from the Oder River
Echinogammarus trichiatus (Martynov, 1932), was recorded for the first time in Poland, in the lower Oder River, in September 2012. The species has most probably reached the Oder through theExpand

Parasites, pathogens and commensals in the “low-impact” non-native amphipod host Gammarus roeselii
BackgroundWhilst vastly understudied, pathogens of non-native species (NNS) are increasingly recognised as important threats to native wildlife. This study builds upon recent recommendations forExpand

Neogene paleogeography provides context for understanding the origin and spatial distribution of cryptic diversity in a widespread Balkan freshwater amphipod
Background The Balkans are a major worldwide biodiversity and endemism hotspot. Among the freshwater biota, amphipods are known for their high cryptic diversity. However, little is known about theExpand

Conquerors or exiles? Impact of interference competition among invasive Ponto-Caspian gammarideans on their dispersal rates
Ponto-Caspian gammarids have invaded European waters, affecting local communities by predation and competition. Their ranges and dispersal rates vary across Europe, which may result from theirExpand

Cryptic invasion of Baltic lowlands by freshwater amphipod of Pontic origin
Gammarus varsoviensis is morphologically close to G. lacustris, with which it is often misidentified. Geographic range of G. varsoviensis includes Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus andExpand
