Biological invasions are increasingly creating ecological and economical problems both on land and in aquatic environments. For over a century, the Mediterranean Sea has steadily been invaded by Indian Ocean/Red Sea species (called Lessepsian invaders) via the Suez Canal, with a current estimate of ~450 species. The bluespotted cornetfish, Fistularia commersonii, considered a ‘Lessepsian sprinter’, entered the Mediterranean in 2000 and by 2007 had spread through the entire basin from Israel to… 
Constructing the genetic population demography of the invasive lionfish Pterois miles in the Levant Basin, Eastern Mediterranean
TLDR
A shared haplotype across all localities in the D-loop provided probable confirmation for the Red Sea origin of the invasive population, and a number of introduced haplotypes indicated that the Mediterranean populations are a product of multiple invasion events.
The genomics of invasion: characterization of red lionfish (Pterois volitans) populations from the native and introduced ranges
TLDR
Overall, this study of the red lionfish showed the pattern of introduction and suggested a deeper sampling of genomic data from individuals within the native range may reveal hybridization between species as the source of the aggressive invasion.
Tropical seagrass Halophila stipulacea shifts thermal tolerance during Mediterranean invasion
TLDR
Minimum and optimal temperatures for growth and oxygen production were lower for Mediterranean populations than for the Red Sea one, and the displacement of the thermal niche of exotic populations towards the colder Mediterranean Sea regime could have occurred within 175 clonal generations.
Right out of the gate: the genomics of Lessepsian invaders in the vicinity of the Suez Canal
Marine organisms that enter the Mediterranean from the Red Sea via the Suez Canal are known as Lessepsian bioinvaders. In general, genetic studies of Lessepsian fishes have shown little structure
The genetics and genomics of marine fish invasions: a global review
TLDR
The majority of studies on marine fishes reveal similar genetic diversity levels in both native and introduced ranges, suggesting massive or multiple introductions, and the potential of marine fish invasions as a model to test evolutionary responses to rapid environmental changes is discussed.
Invasion Genomics: Population structure and diversity patterns in the invasive ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi based on whole-genome re-sequencing
Increased global connectivity has led to an elevated prevalence of invasive species. Marine invaders in particular have caused significant damage to both ecosystems and economies outside of their
Genomic and Transcriptomic Differentiation of Independent Invasions of the Pacific Oyster Crassostrea gigas
TLDR
Comparing the genomic and transcriptomic landscapes of two independent invasions of the Pacific Oyster into the North Sea and identifying functional congruence between population outlier loci and population specific transcriptomic profiles is revealed to reveal a glimpse at the traits and processes characterizing specific mechanisms involved in successful invasions.
Population genomics reveal rapid genetic differentiation in a recently invasive population of Rattus norvegicus
TLDR
This study presents the first genomic evidence on genetic differentiation which developed rapidly, and deepens the understanding of invasion history and evolutionary processes of this newly introduced rat population.
Separate the wheat from the chaff: genomic analysis of local adaptation in the red coral Corallium rubrum
TLDR
The red coral is a highly genetically structured species and a promising model for the study of adaptive processes along an environmental gradient and the evolution of red coral populations along environmental gradients is studied.
Anti-Lessepsian migration rectified: the Comber Serranus cabrilla (L. 1758) existed in the Red Sea prior to the Suez Canal opening
TLDR
Serranus cabrilla must, therefore, have existed in the Red Sea prior to the opening of the Suez Canal and can no longer be considered as an anti-Lessepsian migrant.

Phylogeography of the bluespotted cornetfish, Fistularia commersonii: a predictor of bioinvasion success?
TLDR
The population genetic characteristics of Indo-Pacific native populations of F. commersonii are estimated in order to determine if this Lessepsian ‘sprinter’ fits the predictive model of dispersal and it is found that even in the case of such a very rapid range expansion, the predicted relationship between Fst and CES is fulfilled.
Selection of preadapted populations allowed Senecio inaequidens to invade Central Europe
TLDR
The data support the idea that the invasion success of Senecio inaequidens in Central Europe is based on selective introduction of specific preadapted and plastic genotypes rather than on adaptive evolution in the introduced range.
Genetic cryptic species as biological invaders: the case of a Lessepsian fish migrant, the hardyhead silverside Atherinomorus lacunosus
TLDR
This study focused on the hardyhead silverside, Atherinomorus lacunosus, a Lessepsian migrant, and found that the Mediterranean individuals group with the northern Red Sea species and the two Red Sea populations are likely to correspond to two previously undescribed cryptic species.
Fistularia commersonii (Teleostea: Fistulariidae): walking through the Lessepsian paradox of mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
Results suggest the possible occurrence of two mitochondrial lineages involved in the Mediterranean invasion of F. commersonii, a bottleneck may have caused a loss in the genetic variation, leading to the fixation of specific lineages as an adaptive response to the new environmental conditions.
Genetics of the early stages of invasion of the Lessepsian rabbitfish Siganus luridus
TLDR
Demographics and dynamic aspects of S. luridus in the Mediterranean were evaluated by using phylogeographic and demographic methods based on DNA sequences of the mitochondrial control region and evidence agrees with the idea that Lessepsian migration involves many individuals from its earliest stages.
Genetic bottlenecks and successful biological invasions: the case of a recent Lessepsian migrant
TLDR
It is shown that the invading bluespotted cornetfish underwent a severe population bottleneck that reduced the genetic diversity of this immigrant to only two mitochondrial haplotypes.
Fistularia commersonii in the Mediterranean Sea: invasion history and distribution modeling based on presence-only records
TLDR
The results showed that colonization of the Mediterranean Sea proceeded in parallel along the southern and northern rim of the Basin at speeds that reached 1,000–1,500 km year−1 with a clear decrease in the rate of spread at the Sicily Strait, indicating abiotic factors of primary importance in shaping the distribution of this species in its invaded range.
Genetics of a Lessepsian sprinter: the bluespotted cornetfish, Fistularia commersonii
TLDR
The bluespotted cornetfish, a recent invader of the Mediterranean Sea from the Red Sea via the Suez Canal, provides an ideal case study to research the mechanisms of invasive genetics.
Lessepsian invasion without bottleneck: example of two rabbitfish species (Siganus rivulatus and Siganus luridus)
TLDR
The absence of genetic differentiation between Mediterranean and Red Sea populations in both species showed that a great number of migrants participated to the colonisation of the Mediterranean, excluding any bottleneck event, and suggests large eco-physiological plasticity in S. rivulatus and S. luridus that allowed them to thrive in the new environment.
