Performance of invasive species within marine reserves

  title={Performance of invasive species within marine reserves},
  author={Dana Dee Burfeind and Kylie A. Pitt and Rod M. Connolly and James E. Byers},
Conservation of biodiversity is a major aim of marine reserves; however their effect on non-native invasive species, a major threat to biodiversity globally, is not widely known. Marine reserves could resist invasive species due to enhanced native diversity and biomass that heightens biotic resistance. Or invasive species could be enhanced by reserves by at least three mechanisms, including protection from harvesting, increased fishing pressure outside reserves facilitating invasions at a… Expand

Invasive alien species in Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas: the Egadi Islands (Italy) case study
ABSTRACT Invasive alien species (IAS) are one of the most severe threats to Mediterranean Sea biodiversity. Currently, the effectiveness of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in providing protection forExpand
Non-indigenous species in the Mediterranean marine protected areas : diversity, distribution and impacts
The mixing models indicated that the non-indigenous green alga Caulerpa cylindracea was the most important resource in the diet of the non -indigenous crab Percon gibbesi, thus providing the evidence for the invasion meltdown hypothesis. Expand
Effects of Caulerpa cylindracea Sonder (Chlorophyta Caulerpaceae) on marine biodiversity
It is found that C. cylindracea may have negative effects on the habitat where it settles in two different ways: a) affecting the structure of the native algal community which presents a low diversity, and b) favouring the settlement of other alien species. Expand
Citizen science: a successful tool for monitoring invasive alien species (IAS) in Marine Protected Areas. The case study of the Egadi Islands MPA (Tyrrhenian Sea, Italy)
Abstract The chief purpose of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) is biodiversity conservation. The effects that invasive alien species (IAS) have on MPAs, and vice versa, are not yet fully known, evenExpand

Distribution and ecological relations among the alien crab, Percnon gibbesi (H. Milne-Edwards 1853) and autochthonous species, in and out of an SW Mediterranean MPA
This work highlights the importance of monitoring alien crab population densities taking structural habitat and other potentially influential factors into account and the likely effect of this alien species on the native ones. Expand
The Project “Caulerpa cylindracea in the Egadi Islands”: citizens and scientists working together to monitor marine alien species
The Citizen Science Project “Caulerpa cylindracea Egadi Islands”, launched in 2014 and ended in 2016, aimed at creating a database on the spread dynamics and the levels of threat of the invasive green alga Caulerma cylind racea within the Egadi islands Marine Protected Area (MPA). Expand
An updated overview of the marine alien and cryptogenic species from the Egadi Islands Marine Protected Area (Italy)
An updated overview of the marine alien and cryptogenic species recorded in the Egadi Islands Marine Protected Area, based on relevant publications, grey literature and unpublished data, is presented and why unaided spread and/or transport-stowaway constitute the more plausible vectors of introduction is discussed.
