Assessing the Risks of Aquatic Species Invasions via European Inland Waterways: From Concepts to Environmental Indicators
A conceptual risk assessment model for invasive alien species introductions via European inland waterways, with specific protocols that focus on the development of environmental indicators within the socioeconomic context of the driving forces–pressures–state–impact–response framework is developed.
How to be an invasive gammarid (Amphipoda: Gammaroidea)–comparison of life history traits
Generally the alien species were characterised by a combination of large brood size, high partial fecundity, early maturation and by appearance of higher number of generations per year, which seem to facilitate the colonisation of new areas and competition with native species.
Global diversity of amphipods (Amphipoda; Crustacea) in freshwater
Freshwater amphipods are greatly polyphyletic, continental invasions have taken place repeatedly in different time frames and regions of the world, and have had great impacts on European fluvial ecosystems.
Assessment of biocontamination of benthic macroinvertebrate communities in European inland waterways
Comparison of biocontamination indices and ecological quality status by conventional methods suggests that these metrics are negatively correlated, and richness contamination has a stronger negative affect than abundance contamination.
The profile of a 'perfect' invader - the case of killer shrimp, Dikerogammarus villosus
This review provides a specific example, that studies identifying management strategies that mitigate against a potential invader’s spread should be undertaken at the earliest possible opportunity in order to minimise potentially irreversible ecosystem damage and biodiversity loss.
Salinity-related distribution of alien amphipods in rivers provides refugia for native species
Large rivers were inhabited by alien fauna, whereas in smaller streams only native species were sampled, and the absence of alien amphipods in small rivers may be explained by their ecological preference for a higher conductivity of water.
Invasions of alien gammarid species and retreat of natives in the Vistula Lagoon (Baltic Sea, Poland)
During the last decades of the twentieth century, the alien gammarid species Gammarus tigrinus, Dikerogammarus haemobaphes, Pontogammarus robustoides and Obesogammarus crassus invaded the lower
Rapid colonization of the Polish Baltic coast by an Atlantic palaemonid shrimp Palaemon elegans Rathke, 1837
The history of faunal change associated with P. elegans recent colonization along the Polish Baltic coast, its estuaries, coastal lakes and lagoons is presented.
Recent drastic changes in the gammarid fauna (Crustacea, Amphipoda) of the Vistula River deltaic system in Poland caused by alien invaders
During the last decade of 20th century, the nonindigenous gammarid species Gammarus tigrinus, Dikerogammarus haemobaphes, Pontogammarus robustoides and Obesogammarus crassus invaded the lower Vistula
