Dissolved oxygen (DO) declines have serious implications for the health of aquatic systems. These declines are often attributed to changes in organic or nutrient loading but are not generally attributed to species invasions. We use an 11-year record of DO in the tidal Hudson River to describe the timing and spatial extent of the DO decline as compared to the timing and spatial extent of the zebra mussel establishment in the river. Furthermore, the system attributes that interact with zebra… CONTINUE READING
