A snail prefers native over exotic freshwater plants: implications for the enemy release hypotheses
Snails consumed more biomass of native than exotic plants, providing support for the ERH and suggesting that exotic species have a potential advantage in most lakes of the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River in China, thus helping their invasion. Expand
Above- and belowground competition between two submersed macrophytes
Competitive interactions between neighboring plants depend on species-specific biomass allocation strategies, however, it is difficult to transfer physical partitioning techniques previously used in terrestrial plant studies to aquatic systems, suggesting that the mechanism of competition between aquatic plants may be more complicated.

Responses of the invasive aquatic plant water hyacinth to altered nutrient levels under experimental warming in China
Global warming and eutrophication may interact and increase the invasiveness of certain aquatic plants. To test this hypothesis, a mesocosm experiment was conducted to investigate the growth, biomassExpand
Non-native freshwater fish species in China
The results demonstrate that there are enormous positive and negative impacts of non-native fishes on the economy, and that some non- native species are potential threats to humans and biodiversity in China. Expand
Invasive aquatic plants in China
The taxonomy, origin, vector of introduction, current distribution, and the ecological impacts of invasive aquatic plants in China are summarized and useful information for the management of freshwater habitats is provided and strategies for curtailing the increasing problem are suggested. Expand
Non-English languages enrich scientific knowledge: The example of economic costs of biological invasions.
Combining scientific data from English and non-English sources proves fundamental and enhances data completeness and holds strong potential for improving management performance, coordination among experts (scientists and practitioners), and collaborative actions across countries. Expand
Metal concentrations and risk assessment in water, sediment and economic fish species with various habitat preferences and trophic guilds from Lake Caizi, Southeast China.
The finding demonstrated that the metal concentrations in fishes are simultaneously influenced by the habitat and bio-accumulation through the food chain, suggesting the inexistence of health risks from the intake of fishes from Lake Caizi. Expand
Benefits of clonal integration between interconnected ramets of Vallisneria spiralis in heterogeneous light environments
Results showed that shading apical ramets induced significant benefits to the performance of whole plant in terms of dry weight per plant. Expand
Clonal integration facilitates invasiveness of the alien aquatic plant Myriophyllum aquaticum L. under heterogeneous water availability
It is suggested that clonal integration may facilitate invasion of non-native clonal plant M. aquaticum when subjected to heterogeneity in resource supply under ever-changing environments. Expand
A brief overview of known introductions of non-native marine and coastal species into China
The number of non-native marine species in China is higher in the northern sea than that in the southern sea, and the main introduction pathways are ornamental trade, aquaculture, shipping, and ecological restoration. Expand
