Biological invasions are a principal threat to global biodiversity and identifying the determinants of non-native species’ success is a conservation priority. Through their ability to regulate host populations, parasites are increasingly considered as important in determining the outcome of species’ invasions. Here, we present novel evidence that the common crayfish ecto-symbiont, Xironogiton victoriensis (Annelida: Clitellata) can affect the behaviour of a widespread and ecologically important… CONTINUE READING
