    Recent studies suggest native aquatic predators can favor native over invasive species and provide biotic resistance to invasions. The invasive apple snail, Pomacea maculata continues to spread in freshwaters of Florida and appears to be a strong competitor of the native Florida apple snail ( P....

    Background: Invasive predators may change the structure of invaded communities through predation and competition with native species. In Europe, the invasive signal crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus is excluding the native white clawed crayfish Austropotamobius pallipes. Methodology and...

    Culture of crayfishes needs to assess their physiological condition and immune status, represented mainly by nonspecific immunity factors. Compared to other species, bred by man, crayfish physiology is studied very superficially. The paper proposed a system of intravital assessment of...

    The spiny-cheek crayfish Orconectes limosus was registered for the first time in the Neman River and its tributaries, in the Grodno region, Belarus in 1997. The crayfish spread upstream from Grodno over the next 14 years, migrating 177 km along the course of the Neman River. Today spiny-cheek...

    Invasive alien species have the potential to alter biodiversity and ecosystem processes. In freshwaters, detritus decomposition is a major ecosystem service but it remains uncertain whether invasive alien decapods process detritus differently to natives. This study examined leaf litter...

    Conditions fostering coexistence of native species with invasive species have received little attention in invasion biology, especially for closely related invasive and native species. We used long-term datasets on multiple replicate invasions to define conditions under which native virile...

    We report the first record of invasive Orconectes rusticus (Rusty Crayfish) in the Potomac River, MD. Four specimens were collected in June 2010 in the Potomac River downstream from the confluence of Antietam Creek near Sharpsburg, MD. Subsequent surveys in the Potomac River mainstem and three...

    Invasive crayfish are spreading rapidly across Europe, where they are replacing the native crayfish species and impacting negatively on some other biota. Freshwater crayfish and many benthic fishes share similar habitat and food requirements and hence potentially compete for resources. In this...

    Invasive predators can devastate native species and ecosystems. However, native species may be able to coexist with invasive predators through a variety of mechanisms, such as changes in morphology or behavior due to a plastic response or selection on fixed anti-predator traits. We examined...

    Orconectes rusticus (Rusty Crayfish) have invaded streams of the upper Susquehanna River catchment, NY, replacing native crayfish and, in some areas, increasing overall crayfish density. Crayfish are important consumers and significant agents of disturbance in aquatic communities, so the...
