Biological invasions / P. Convey, Y. Frenot, N. Gremmen, D.M. Bergstrom.

Title: Biological invasions / P. Convey, Y. Frenot, N. Gremmen, D.M. Bergstrom.
Author(s): Convey, P.
Frenot, Y.
Gremmen, N.
Bergstrom, D. M.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
In: Trends in Antarctic terrestrial and limnetic ecosystems : Antarctica as a global indicator. (2006.),
Abstract: Assesses current significance of invasive species in Antarctica, with particular reference to effects of introduced mammals on sub-Antarctic islands; introduction and reproduction of alien species of invertebrates; microbial groups and introduction of plant pathogens; and absence of non-indigenous species in freshwater and marine habitats of continental and Maritime Antarctica. Examines plant communities on Prince Edward Islands, Heard Island, and Iles Kerguelen in greater detail, and comments of pattern of colonisation along tracks on Iles Crozet. Discusses impacts of introduced vertebrates including house mice, cats, rabbits, and reindeer, and unexpected results of their eradication at a time of climate change; and potential impacts on soil biology of introduced invertebrates, including worms. Comments on possible future scenarios for introduced species under conditions of climate change.
