Ocean invaders, the consequences of biological pollution
Host: to be announced
The introduction of non-indigenous and invasive species in the aquatic environment can heavily alter marine ecosystems and have negative consequences for the functioning of local biodiversity. Biological invasion events are mostly associated with human activities, such as maritime traffic, tourism activities but also the intended transfer of species.
This session is about the direct and indirect impacts that these species can have on marine biodiversity. We invite speakers to present their research about the impact of NIS and invasive species, without being restricted, to topics such as their impact but also how consequences of these invasions could be approached in a local or global perspective.
