Invasion by the marine gastropod Ocinebrellus inornatus in France. III. Comparison of biological traits with the resident species Ocenebra erinacea

Comparing life-history traits between the introduced and resident species showed that O. inornatus has more favourable traits, such as a better mean growth rate and a higher reproductive effort, in comparison with O. erinacea, which may explain the invader establishment and, partly, its spread along the coast of France.

The effect of an invasive species on predation rates upon intertidal barnacles

Warming air and oceanic temperature trends are expected to alter the distribution and abundance of both native and invasive species, and the effects of which are effectively predicted using this study.

Alien species alert: Crassostrea gigas (Pacific oyster)

Its capacity to adapt to various environmental conditions and temperature fluctuations, coupled with its rapid growth and resistance to highly turbid areas, contributes to its success.

Sustainable large‐scale production of European flat oyster ( Ostrea edulis ) seed for ecological restoration and aquaculture: a review

A summary of all available knowledge and technologies of O. edulis seed production is provided and future research needs on sex determinism, gametogenesis, cryopreservation, nutrition, selective breeding, pathogens and disease, and the development of reliable protocols for production are highlighted.

Molecular systematics and population genetics of biological invasions: towards a better understanding of invasive species management

The different molecular markers routinely used in such studies and their application(s) in addressing different questions in invasion ecology are reviewed.

Introduction of Non-Native Oysters: Ecosystem Effects and Restoration Implications

Oysters have been introduced worldwide to 73 countries, but the ecological consequences of the introductions are not fully understood and substantial population, community, and habitat changes have accompanied new oysters.

Freshwater immersion as a method to remove Urosalpinx cinerea and Ocinebrellus inornatus from mussel seed

Freshwater failed to kill any individuals of either species, but did cause them to detach from the substratum for the entire time of immersion, so immersion in freshwater is therefore not recommended as a method to control the drills.

The Health Status and Genetic Variations of the Bivalve, Pinctala radiata Affected by Environmental Pollution

The stress protein response was studied as an indicator of water quality in gills and striated muscle tissues of fathead minnows and Pimephales promelas exposed to a wide range of concentrations of sodium arsenite for various time intervals.

The largescale small pelagic fisheries - are supported by an important productive ma-rine region in the NW African region: The Canary Current ecosystem, which is one of the largest wind-induced



Traditional oyster culture in France

It was not until the 17th century that oyster culture began, first in the pools of the salt marshes of the Atlantic coast and then in specially managed ponds, and in the early days, the juvenile oysters all came from natural stocks.

Contribution to a synopsis of marine species richness in the Pertuis Charentais Sea with new insights in soft-bottom macrofauna of the Marennes-Oléron Bay

The catalogue of soft-bottom macrofauna in the Marennes-Oleron Bay (French Atlantic coast) has been updated from a benthic survey conducted in April-May 1995. 262 stations were selected using a

Direct amplification of length polymorphisms (DALP), or how to get and characterize new genetic markers in many species.

This method was used to detect micro-deletions/insertions and microsatellite DNA loci useful in population genetics studies, but it could be applied in many other fields of biology, such as genome mapping for definition of polymorphic sequence tagged sites, directly localized on a genetic map.
