Diversity of Bivalve Molluscs in the St Lucia Estuary, with an Annotated and Illustrated Checklist

A census of the diversity of bivalve molluscs in this estuary emphasising changes associated with climate-induced hydrological states and Meretrix meretrix, an unexpected yet abundant species, represents a new record for South African waters.

Biogeographic drivers of distribution and abundance in an alien ecosystem engineer: Transboundary range expansion, barriers to spread, and spatial structure

Biogeographic boundaries can act as either weak or strong barriers to the spread of species undergoing distributional change. Once a novel species spreads across a boundary, it can have a substantial
