Linking climate change and biological invasions: Ocean warming facilitates nonindigenous species invasions
TLDR
Comparing the long-term record of weekly sessile marine invertebrate recruitment with interannual variation in water temperature suggests that the greatest effects of climate change on biotic communities may be due to changing maximum and minimum temperatures rather than annual means.
BIODIVERSITY, INVASION RESISTANCE, AND MARINE ECOSYSTEM FUNCTION: RECONCILING PATTERN AND PROCESS
TLDR
A strong negative correlation between native-species richness and the number and frequency of nonnative invaders at the scale of both a single quadrat and an entire site is found, which suggests that the means by which diversity affects invasion resistance in experiments is important in determining the distribution of invasive species in the field.
Interactions among aliens: apparent replacement of one exotic species by another.
TLDR
The Carcinus-Hemigrapsus interactions documented here are relevant in other parts of the world where green crabs and grapsid crabs interact, particularly on the west coast of North America where C. maenas has recently invaded and co-occurs with two native HemigraPSus species.
Relative impacts of two exotic brachyuran species on blue mussel populations in Long Island sound
TLDR
The invasion by H. sanguineus and the decline of C. maenas has apparently had a net negative influence on intertidal blue mussel populations.
Genetic conspecificity of the worldwide populations of Didemnum vexillum Kott, 2002.
TLDR
Molecular data on both mitochondrial and nuclear genes from colonies sampled from Europe, east and west coasts of North America, Japan, and New Zealand strongly indicate that Didemnum sp.
Scale-Dependent Recolonization: The Role of Sediment Stability in a Dynamic Sandflat Habitat
TLDR
The results demonstrate the need for caution in scaling-up from small-scale studies, and indicate that larger scale disturbances that destroy organisms with a role in maintaining habitat stability are likely to result in very slow recovery dynamics, particularly in wave-disturbed soft-sediment habitats.
