Predicting the impact of aquatic species invasions

This research seeks to develop a predictive understanding of aquatic   invasions, using a combination of field experiments, empirical   modelling and meta-analysis. Researchers are interested in   predicting which invasions will fundamentally alter fish and   invertebrate communities - e.g. why some invaders cause cascading   impacts through food webs and whether these impacts are predictable.   Researchers will also study impacts caused by interactions between   aquatic invasions and other environmental stressors, such as climate   change and river impoundment.    (aquatic invasive species); (AIS); (ANS); (aquatic nuisance   species); (food webs); (food web); (climate change); (river   impoundment)
