History of Dreissena research and the ICAIS gateway to aquatic invasions research
MetadataShow full item record
Research on the ecology and impacts of the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) has developed in parallel with the long history of their spread across Europe and to North America. There is less scientific knowledge however about the quagga mussel (Dreissena rostriformis bugensis). The recent spread of both zebra and quagga mussels to the Western states of the USA, has spurred on dreissenid research. The 17th International Conference on Aquatic Invasive Species (ICAIS), was held in San Diego, California in September 2010. This special edition of Aquatic Invasions includes topical research presented at ICAIS and also extra subsequent papers on ecology, risk assessment and control of various aquatic invasive species in different parts of the globe.
