Global ecological impacts of invasive species in aquatic ecosystems
TLDR
The synthesis suggests a strong negative influence of invasive species on the abundance of aquatic communities, particularly macrophytes, zooplankton and fish, and proposes a framework of positive and negative links between invasive species at four trophic positions and the five different components of recipient communities.
Dispersal of invasive and native brine shrimps Artemia (Anostraca) via waterbirds
TLDR
It is found that large numbers of viable eggs of A. franciscana and native Artemia parthenogenetica were dispersed by Redshank Tringa totanus, Blacktailed Godwit Limosa limosa, and other shorebirds migrating through the Iberian Peninsula, the most extensive field demonstration to date that invertebrates can disperse readily via gut passage through birds.
The American brine shrimp as an exotic invasive species in the western Mediterranean
TLDR
Based on brine shrimp cyst samples collected in these countries from 1980 until 2002, the present distribution of autochthonous brine shrimps and of A. franciscana is established, which suggests that the native species can be rapidly replaced by the exotic species.
The American brine shrimp as an exotic invasive species in the western Mediterranean
TLDR
The results suggest that the native species can be rapidly replaced by the exotic species, and suggest that these exotic A. franciscana populations originate as intentional or non-intentional inoculations through aquacultural (hatchery effluents) or pet market activities.
Cestodes from Artemia parthenogenetica (Crustacea, Branchiopoda) in the Odiel Marshes, Spain: A systematic survey of cysticercoids
TLDR
This study provides the first record of Anomotaenia tringae in an intermediate host and the first records of C. podicipina, E. avoceti, A.tringae and G. stammeri in Spain.
Neurological and Physiological Disorders in Artemia Harboring Manipulative Cestodes
TLDR
Part of the cerebral proteome of brine shrimp Artemia infected by manipulative cestodes is analyzed using for the first time the ProteinChip Surface-Enhanced Laser Desorption Ionization and Time of Fly Mass Spectrometry (SELDI-TOF MS) system, which has been proposed as an excellent way to analyze the host genome during the host–parasite interaction processes.
Why join groups? Lessons from parasite-manipulated Artemia.
TLDR
This study finds that swarming propensity increased in cestode-infected hosts and that red colour intensity was higher in swarming compared with non-swarming infected hosts, suggesting that parasites can play a prominent role in host grouping behaviours.
Comparing the potential for dispersal via waterbirds of a native and an invasive brine shrimp.
TLDR
Both non-native and native brine shrimps have a similar high capacity for endozoochory via birds, and that the invasiveness of A. franciscana is probably explained by its competitive superiority owing to high fecundity and release from cestode parasitism.
Spatial and temporal fluctuations in presence and use of chironomid prey by shorebirds in the Odiel saltpans, south-west Spain
We studied the seasonal variation in abundance and distribution of shorebirds and chironomid Chironomus salinarius larvae in both traditional and industrial salines in the Odiel marshes, south-west
