This collaborative effort by many specialists across the Mediterranean presents an updated annotated list of alien marine species in the Mediterranean Sea. Alien species have been grouped into six broad categories namely established, casual, questionable, cryptogenic, excluded and invasive, and presented in lists of major ecofunctional/taxonomic groups. The establishment success within each group is provided while the questionable and excluded records are commented in brief. A total of 963…

Additions to the annotated list of marine alien biota in the mediterranean with special emphasis on foraminifera and parasites
TLDR
This update of the annotated list based on literature up to April 2008 yields a further 175 alien species in the Mediterranean bringing the total to 903, and approximately 100 more species have become well established in the region, raising the number of established species to 496 versus 385 until 2005.

TLDR
The preliminary list of the 100 ‘worst’ Invasive Alien Species in the Mediterranean has been produced and presented and can provide the basis for selecting indicator species within the Mediterranean and thus be the common ground to build cooperation about IAS within countries in the region.

Exotic molluscs in the Mediterranean basin: Current status and perspectives
TLDR
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.

TLDR
The number of NIS remains an underestimate, calling for continuous updating and systematic research, and shipping appears to be the major vector of introduction (excluding the Lessepsian migration).
Review of Non-Native Marine Plants in the Mediterranean Sea

TLDR
Literature compilations for all Europe revealed totally 529 introduced vascular plants (established or occasional) in aquatic environments, 214 being true aquatic or semiaquatic species, with microalgae mainly being spread accidentally as epibionts in aquaculture, with ship-fouling also being significant.
