Contrasting patterns and processes of biological invasions in blue versus green ecosystems

Main menu

  

Insects are among the most successful invasive species but there are surprisingly few aquatic insects that invaded freshwater ecosystems outside their native range. In this project we are analysing several international datasets to compare the proportions of invasive species among aquatic and terrestrial species in several taxa and to test hypotheses why aquatic insects are underrepresented among successful invaders.
