Differential susceptibility to hypoxia aids estuarine invasion

  title={Differential susceptibility to hypoxia aids estuarine invasion},
  author={James E Byers},
I examined the resistance of 2 competing estuarine mudsnails, Cerithidea californica (native) and Batillaria attramentaria (exotic), to mortality from microbes and associated alteration of the abiotic environment (i.e., hypoxia). B. attramentaria is displacing C. californica from salt marshes of northern California where the 2 species overlap. I first examined the mortality and distribution of the snails during 2 natural experiments in Bolinas salt marsh (Marin Co., California, USA) that… CONTINUE READING
