drivers of invertebrate communities
How invertebrate communities are
impacted by shellfish harveting?
Round Goby Experiment
A field cage experiment to compare
native and non-native fish
impacts on invertebrates
An aquarium experiment to measure impacts of non-native worms
The invasive worm Marenzelleria spp. is one of the most successful nonnative species in the Baltic Sea. First observed in the Baltic Sea in 1985, they quickly colonized the entire sea, occupying a dominant position in the communities.
The invasive worm Boccardiella ligerica was first found in southwestern Finland in 1963. They are small and live in a tube constructed of mucus and sediments.
