ABSTRACT Examining congeners can help identify critical differences between species that affect invasion and spread. We examined Dreissenapolymorpha (zebra mussel) and Dreissena rostriformis bugensis (quagga mussel), which are important invaders in freshwater and share general ecological characteristics, to determine whether they had similar rates of invasion at different spatial scales (global, regional, local, and individual water bodies) from the time of first introduction to the present… CONTINUE READING
