Grasping at the routes of biological invasions: a framework for integrating pathways into policy
Summary 1. Pathways describe the processes that result in the introduction of alien species from one location to another. A framework is proposed to facilitate the comparative analysis of invasionExpand
Alien species in a warmer world: risks and opportunities.
Climate change and biological invasions are key processes affecting global biodiversity, yet their effects have usually been considered separately. Here, we emphasise that global warming has enabledExpand
The Baltic—a sea of invaders 1
There are about 100 nonindigenous species recorded in the Baltic Sea. Invasive species have resulted in major changes in nearshore ecosystems, especially in coastal lagoons and inlets that can beExpand
Invasion of Lake Ontario by the Ponto–Caspian predatory cladoceran Cercopagis pengoi
Cercopagis pengoi, a waterflea native to the Ponto-Caspian region, was discovered during 1998 in Lake Ontario. Individuals were found throughout the lake during summer snagged on sportfishing lines.Expand
Assessing the Risks of Aquatic Species Invasions via European Inland Waterways: From Concepts to Environmental Indicators
Abstract EDITOR'S NOTE: This is 1 of 12 papers prepared by participants attending the workshop “Risk Assessment in European River Basins–State of the Art and Future Challenges” held in Liepzig,Expand
Establishment of new gammarid species in the eastern Gulf of Finland (Baltic Sea) and their effects on littoral communities
During the last ten years two new species of gammarids, Gmelinoides fasciatus (Stebb.) and Pontogammarus robustoides (Sars), invaded the Gulf of Finland. We studied the distribution and abundance ofExpand
Molecular ecology of zebra mussel invasions
The invasion of the zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha, into North American waters has resulted in profound ecological disturbances and large monetary losses. This study examined the invasion historyExpand
Pathways and gateways of freshwater invasions in Europe
CITATION: Nunes, A. L., et al. 2015. Pathways and gateways of freshwater invasions in Europe. Aquatic Invasions, 10(4):359-370, doi:10.3391/ai.2015.10.4.01.
Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis in the Baltic Sea—a supply-side invader?
Although the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis (H. Milne-Edwards, 1853) (Crustacea, Decapoda, Varunidae) invaded the Baltic Sea about 80 years ago, published information on its presentExpand
Assessment of biocontamination of benthic macroinvertebrate communities in European inland waterways
Introductions of alien species, regardless of their actual or potential impacts, can be considered as a biocontamination of the ecosystem. A simple method to assess biocontamination is described andExpand
