Fish Invasions in the World's River Systems: When Natural Processes Are Blurred by Human Activities
Because species invasions are a principal driver of the human-induced biodiversity crisis, the identification of the major determinants of global invasions is a prerequisite for adopting soundExpand

Decomposing functional β-diversity reveals that low functional β-diversity is driven by low functional turnover in European fish assemblages
Aim One of the main gaps in the assessment of biodiversity is the lack of a unified framework for measuring its taxonomic and functional facets and for unveiling the underlying patterns. LocationExpand

Partitioning global patterns of freshwater fish beta diversity reveals contrasting signatures of past climate changes.
Here, we employ an additive partitioning framework to disentangle the contribution of spatial turnover and nestedness to beta diversity patterns in the global freshwater fish fauna. We find thatExpand

How many dimensions are needed to accurately assess functional diversity? A pragmatic approach for assessing the quality of functional spaces
We propose a framework for evaluating the quality of a functional space (i.e. the extent to which it is a faithful representation of the initial functional trait values). Expand

The use of artificial neural networks to assess fish abundance and spatial occupancy in the littoral zone of a mesotrophic lake
The present work describes a comparison of the ability of multiple linear regression (MLR) and artificial neural networks (ANN) to predict fish spatial occupancy and abundance in a mesotrophicExpand

Conservation Strategies for Endemic Fish Species Threatened by the Three Gorges Dam
The largest damming project to date, the Three Gorges Dam has been built along the Yangtze River (China), the most species-rich river in the Palearctic region. Among 162 species of fish inhabitingExpand

Homogenization patterns of the world’s freshwater fish faunas
The world is currently undergoing an unprecedented decline in biodiversity, which is mainly attributable to human activities. For instance, nonnative species introduction, combined with theExpand

Functional homogenization exceeds taxonomic homogenization among European fish assemblages
Aim Human activities and the consequent extirpations of native species and introductions of non-native species have been modifying the composition of species assemblages throughout the world.Expand

Behaviour of roach (Rutilus rutilus L.) altered by Ligula intestinalis (Cestoda: Pseudophyllidea): a field demonstration
SUMMARY 1. We studied the influence of a cestode parasite, the tapeworm Ligula intestinalis (L.) on roach (Rutilus rutilus L.) spatial occupancy in a French reservoir (Lake Pareloup, Southwest ofExpand

Global diversity patterns and cross-taxa convergence in freshwater systems.
Whereas global patterns and predictors of species diversity are well known for numerous terrestrial taxa, our understanding of freshwater diversity patterns and their predictors is much more limited.Expand
