Where Vectors Collide: The Importance of Mechanisms Shaping the Realized Niche for Modeling Ranges of Invasive Mosquitoes.

Biol Invasions 2018 Aug 25;20(8):1913-1929. Epub 2018 Jan 25.

School of Biological Sciences, Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois 61790-4120, USA.

The vector mosquitoes (L.), native to Africa, and (Skuse), native to Asia, are widespread invasives whose spatial distributions frequently overlap. Predictive models of their distributions are typically correlative rather than mechanistic, and based on only abiotic variables describing putative environmental requirements despite extensive evidence of competitive interactions leading to displacements.

Historical ecology of a biological invasion: the interplay of eutrophication and pollution determines time lags in establishment and detection.

Biol Invasions 2018 24;20(6):1417-1430. Epub 2017 Nov 24.

1Department of Palaeontology, University of Vienna, Althanstrasse 14, 1090 Vienna, Austria.

Human disturbance modifies selection regimes, depressing native species fitness and enabling the establishment of non-indigenous species with suitable traits. A major impediment to test the effect of disturbance on invasion success is the lack of long-term data on the history of invasions. Here, we overcome this problem and reconstruct the effect of disturbance on the invasion of the bivalve from sediment cores in the Adriatic Sea. Read More

Biological invasions increase the richness of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi from a Hawaiian subtropical ecosystem.

Biol Invasions 2018 21;20(9):2421-2437. Epub 2018 Mar 21.

2Department of Botany, University of Hawaii Manoa, 3190 Maile Way Room 101, Honolulu, HI 96822 USA.

Biological invasions can have various impacts on the diversity of important microbial mutualists such as mycorrhizal fungi, but few studies have tested whether the effects of invasions on mycorrhizal diversity are consistent across spatial gradients. Furthermore, few of these studies have taken place in tropical ecosystems that experience an inordinate rate of invasions into native habitats. Here, we examined the effects of plant invasions dominated by non-native tree species on the diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi in Hawaii. Read More

Effects of admixture in native and invasive populations of .

Biol Invasions 2018 21;20(9):2381-2393. Epub 2018 Mar 21.

4Department of Terrestrial Ecology, Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW), Droevendaalsesteeg 10, 6708 PB Wageningen, Netherlands.

Intraspecific hybridization between diverged populations can enhance fitness via various genetic mechanisms. The benefits of such admixture have been proposed to be particularly relevant in biological invasions, when invasive populations originating from different source populations are found sympatrically. However, it remains poorly understood if admixture is an important contributor to plant invasive success and how admixture effects compare between invasive and native ranges. Read More

Increase in density of genetically diverse invasive Asian shore crab () populations in the Gulf of Maine.

Biol Invasions 2017 Apr;19(4):1153-1168

Bates College, Lewiston, ME 04240, USA.

, the Asian shore crab, has rapidly replaced , the green crab, as the most abundant crab on rocky shores in the northwest Atlantic since its introduction to the United States (USA) in 1988. The northern edge of this progressing invasion is the Gulf of Maine, where Asian shore crabs are only abundant in the south. We compared population densities to those from published 2005 surveys and quantified genetic variation using the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene. Read More

Distribution of the invasive bryozoan in Great Britain and Ireland and a review of its European distribution.

Biol Invasions 2017 28;19(8):2225-2235. Epub 2017 Apr 28.

The Environmental Research Institute, North Highland College, The University of the Highlands and Islands, Ormlie Rd, Thurso, KW14 7EE Scotland, UK.

The bryozoan Ortmann (1890) was first recorded in European waters in 2010 and has since been reported from further locations in Great Britain (GB) and Norway. This paper provides a new earliest European record for the species from 2009, a first record from Ireland and presence and absence records from a total of 231 marinas and harbours across GB, Ireland, the Isle of Man, France and Portugal. This species is typically associated with human activity, including commercial and recreational vessels, aquaculture equipment, and both wave and tidal energy devices. Read More

Towards the genetic control of invasive species.

Biol Invasions 2017 21;19(6):1683-1703. Epub 2017 Feb 21.

The Pirbright Institute, Pirbright, UK.

Invasive species remain one of the greatest threats to global biodiversity. Their control would be enhanced through the development of more effective and sustainable pest management strategies. Recently, a novel form of genetic pest management (GPM) has been developed in which the mating behaviour of insect pests is exploited to introduce genetically engineered DNA sequences into wild conspecific populations.

Invaders in hot water: a simple decontamination method to prevent the accidental spread of aquatic invasive non-native species.

Biol Invasions 2015;17(8):2287-2297. Epub 2015 Mar 26.

Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas), Barrack Road, The Nothe, Weymouth, Dorset, DT4 8UB UK.

Watersports equipment can act as a vector for the introduction and spread of invasive non native species (INNS) in freshwater environments. To support advice given to recreational water users under the UK Government's biosecurity campaign and ensure its effectiveness at killing a range of aquatic INNS, we conducted a survival experiment on seven INNS which pose a high risk to UK freshwaters. The efficacy of exposure to hot water (45 °C, 15 min) was tested as a method by which waters users could 'clean' their equipment and was compared to drying and a control group (no treatment).

Contrasting the effects of environment, dispersal and biotic interactions to explain the distribution of invasive plants in alpine communities.

Biol Invasions 2015 May;17(5):1407-1423

Univ. Grenoble Alpes, Laboratoire d'Ecologie Alpine (LECA), F-38000 Grenoble, France ; CNRS, Laboratoire d'Ecologie Alpine (LECA), F-38000 Grenoble, France.

Despite considerable efforts devoted to investigate the community assembly processes driving plant invasions, few general conclusions have been drawn so far. Three main processes, generally acting as successive filters, are thought to be of prime importance. The invader has to disperse (1 filter) into a suitable environment (2 filter) and succeed in establishing in recipient communities through competitive interactions (3 filter) using two strategies: competition avoidance by the use of different resources (), or of native species.

Ongoing expansion of the worldwide invader (Ascidiacea) in the Mediterranean Sea: high plasticity of its biological cycle promotes establishment in warm waters.

Biol Invasions 2015;17(7):2075-2085. Epub 2015 Mar 4.

Center for Advanced Studies of Blanes (CEAB-CSIC), Acces Cala S Francesc 14, 17300 Blanes, Girona Spain.

Non-indigenous ascidians are of particular concern to aquaculture industry and, paradoxically, the activities associated with it represent an important way to translocate these species worldwide. In 2012 a non-indigenous ascidian was found covering the oyster crops in the Ebro Delta (Western Mediterranean). We have identified the ascidian genetically and morphologically as Kott, 2002.

Harbor networks as introduction gateways: contrasting distribution patterns of native and introduced ascidians.

Biol Invasions 2015;17(6):1623-1638. Epub 2014 Dec 10.

Center for Advanced Studies of Blanes (CEAB-CSIC), Accés Cala S. Francesc 14, 17300 Blanes, Girona, Spain.

Harbors and marinas are well known gateways for species introductions in marine environments but little work has been done to ascertain relationships between species diversity, harbor type, and geographic distance to uncover patterns of secondary spread. Here, we sampled ascidians from 32 harbors along ca. 300 km of the NW Mediterranean coast and investigated patterns of distribution and spread related to harbor type (marina, fishing, commercial) and geographic location using multivariate techniques.

Contributions of temporal segregation, oviposition choice, and non-additive effects of competitors to invasion success of (Diptera: Culicidae) in North America.

Biol Invasions 2015 Jun;17(6):1669-1681

School of Biological Sciences, Illinois State University, Normal, IL, USA.

The mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) has spread rapidly through North America since its introduction in the 1990s. The mechanisms underlying its establishment in container communities occupied by competitors and are unclear. Possibilities include (A) temporal separation of from other , (B) oviposition avoidance by of sites containing heterospecific larvae, and (C) non-additive competitive effects in assemblages of multiple .

Combining field epidemiological information and genetic data to comprehensively reconstruct the invasion history and the microevolution of the sudden oak death agent (Stramenopila: Oomycetes) in California.

Biol Invasions 2013 29;15:2281-2297. Epub 2013 May 29.

Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, University of California, 130 Mulford Hall, Berkeley, CA 94720-3114 USA.

Understanding the migration patterns of invasive organisms is of paramount importance to predict and prevent their further spread. Previous attempts at reconstructing the entire history of the sudden oak death (SOD) epidemic in California were limited by: (1) incomplete sampling; (2) the inability to include infestations caused by a single genotype of the pathogen; (3) collapsing of non-spatially contiguous yet genetically similar samples into large meta-samples that confounded the coalescent analyses. Here, we employ an intensive sampling coverage of 832 isolates of (the causative agent of SOD) from 60 California forests, genotyped at nine microsatellite loci, to reconstruct its invasion.

Initial epidemic area is strongly associated with the yearly extent of soybean rust spread in North America.

Biol Invasions 2013 Jul;15(7):1431-1438

Department of Botany and Plant Pathology, 2082 Cordley Hall, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331-2902, USA.

Hosts of soybean rust () are sensitive to low temperatures, limiting this obligate parasite in the United States to overwintering sites in a restricted area along the Gulf Coast. This temperature sensitivity of soybean rust hosts allowed us to study spatial spread of epidemic invasions over similar territory for seven sequential years, 2005-2011. The epidemic front expanded slowly from early April through July, with the majority of expansion occurring from August through November. Read More

Escape from gregarine parasites affects the competitive interactions of an invasive mosquito.

Biol Invasions 2002 Sep;4(3):283-297

Behavior, Ecology, Evolution, & Systematics Section, Department of Biological Sciences, Illinois State University, Normal, IL 61790-4120, USA.

When a species is introduced into a new location, it may escape, at least temporarily, from its natural enemies. In field surveys, we found that when the exotic, invasive mosquito, Aedes albopictus, invades new sites, it initially experiences reduced infection by its gut parasite, Ascogregarina taiwanensis. To determine the effect of this escape from parasitism on the competitive ability of A. Read More
