Alien species in the Mediterranean Sea by 2010. A contribution to the application of European Union's Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). Part I. Spatial distribution
The state-of-art on alien species in the Mediterranean Sea is presented, making distinctions among the four subregions defined in the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive; the WMED hosts most invasive macrophytes, whereas the EMED has the lion’s share in polychaetes, crustaceans, molluscs and fish.
Alien species in the Mediterranean Sea by 2012. A contribution to the application of European Union’s Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). Part 2. Introduction trends and pathways
There is an increasing trend in new introductions via the Suez Canal and via shipping, while Lessepsian species decline westwards, while the reverse pattern is evident for ship-mediated species and for those introduced with aquaculture.

Exotic molluscs in the Mediterranean basin: Current status and perspectives
The data regarding the Mollusca do not support any substantialfaunal change caused by an influx of subtropical faunal elements through the Straits of Gibraltar, and not a single newcomer to the Mediter- ranean basin by this route could be detected in this survey.

One hundred years after Pinctada: an update on alien Mollusca in Tunisia
The occurrence of aliens in Tunisia is balanced between presumably Lessepsian species of tropical Indo-Pacific origin, and species from other sources including species from the Tropical Atlantic introduced through shipping.
Temporal changes of mollusc populations from a Zostera marina bed in southern Spain (Alboran Sea), with biogeographic considerations
The dynamic pattern of the mollusc populations showed a temporal trend with monthly values of species richness and abundance ranging between 10 and 25 species and between 178 and 4412 individuals·222 m−2 higher in the spring and summer months than in the autumn and winter ones.

The gastropod family Rissoidae is revised at the species level for the Lusitanian seamounts, situated between Portugal and Madeira, and the Meteor group of seamounts, situated south of the Azores in…
A highly diverse molluscan assemblage associated with eelgrass beds ( Zostera marina L.) in the Alboran Sea: Micro-habitat preference, feeding guilds and biogeographical distribution
The fauna of molluscs associated with deep subtidal Zostera marina beds in southern Spain has been characterised in terms of micro-habitat preference, feeding guilds and biogeographical affinity, and is richer than that found in other eelgrass beds of Europe.
