Seminar Title: When invasion becomes range expansion: Carcinus maenas on the Pacific coast of North America Abstract: Biological invasions are a leading cause of global biodiversity decline and result in substantial economic costs. In the last century, improvements in transoceanic shipping have mediated exponential increases in marine invasions worldwide through ballast water transport of larvae. Following the initial invasion, introduced species may subsequently spread and expand their ranges altering…
