This review provides a central reference as researchers continue studying N. melanostomus, which inhabit a wide range of temperate freshwater and brackish-water ecosystems and will probably continue to spread via ballast water, accidental bait release and natural dispersal worldwide.
Energetic Limits to Economic Growth
The human population and economy have grown exponentially and now have impacts on climate, ecosystem processes, and biodiversity far exceeding those of any other species. Like all organisms, humans…

A classification-tree model is constructed based on habitat data from 354 lakes in the native range for smelt in southern Maine to identify lakes vulnerable to invasion in three regions outside the smelt's native range and identifies a subset of lakes with a strong potential for impact based on the presence of fish species that are affected by rainbow smelt.
The Macroecology of Sustainability
Global consumption rates of vital resources suggest that we have surpassed the capacity of the Earth to sustain current levels, much less future trajectories of growth in human population and economy.

It is concluded that the IBI can be used without modification to assess environmental quality in non-coastal streams and rivers within these five basins and suggestions for its application in other basins are available.

The helminth parasite fauna of fishes of the Pánuco River basin are not exclusive, including a primordially autogenic Neotropical species component mixed with a mainly allogenic, globally distributed Nearctic species component.
The effects of impoundment and non‐native species on a river food web in Mexico's central plateau
Habitat modifications, non‐native species and other anthropogenic impacts have restructured fish communities in lotic ecosystems of central Mexico. Conservation of native fishes requires…

It was found that oyster CIs for sites in larger systems (river and sound sites) were significantly higher than those in sites with lower flux and width and that the presence of pea crabs as parasites can reduce CI by ~50%.
