The methods employed have also affected the abundance and distribution of species that are native to the Great Lakes basin, including the American brook lamprey Lampetra appendix (also known as Lethenteron(More)
Invasions by exotic organisms have had devastating affects on aquatic ecosystems, both ecologically and economically.
