Predicting establishment success for introduced freshwater fishes: a role for climate matching

  title={Predicting establishment success for introduced freshwater fishes: a role for climate matching},
  author={M. K. Bomford and Simon C. Barry and Emma Lawrence},
  journal={Biological Invasions},
We modelled data comprising 1,189 successful and 489 failed introduction records for 280 species of freshwater fishes around the world. We found significant variations in establishment success between genera and families. The number of countries where introductions occurred was a significant predictor of the probability a species would establish in at least one country and all species that had been introduced to nine or more countries (46 species) had established at least one exotic population… CONTINUE READING
