Re-evaluating eradication of nuisance species : invasion of the tunicate , Ciona intestinalis

  title={Re-evaluating eradication of nuisance species : invasion of the tunicate , Ciona intestinalis},
  author={Paul K. Edwards and Brian Leung},
} © The Ecological Society of America M non-native tunicate species have recently invaded the coastal waters of North America and pose serious threats to marine ecosystems (McKindsey et al. 2007). The tunicates occur in such massive numbers that the substratum itself may be entirely obscured (Figure 1). In particular, an invasion by the tunicate Ciona intestinalis (henceforth “Ciona”) is considered to be at a “crisis level”, and is a major marine invasive species issue… CONTINUE READING
