#InvasionsLabPub Alert! @SmithsonianEnv scientists Brenda Soler-Figueroa led a paper on the characteristics of global port phytoplankton and their implications for current #BallastWater regulations @sciencedirect #Thread
1/4-Thirty-one major ports in the Northern Hemisphere over a wide range of latitudes and salinities were selected to evaluate: a) how natural communities compare to challenge requirements and b) the abundance of unregulated size fractions. #BallastWater #PlanktonSampling #Thread Map of port sampling locati...
2/4-Phytoplankton <10 μm comprised over 80% of total abundance and yet are unregulated. Some of the organisms in this size class pose serious threats to ecosystem, fisheries and human health. #BallastWater #PlanktonSampling #Thread Average and percent composi...

#InvasionsLabPub Alert! @SmithsonianEnv scientist Erica Keppel led a new paper re-describing the sabellid tubeworm Parasabella fullo after our team discovered the first record of the #invasive worm on a ship hull in California. #WormWednesday #THREAD…
Parasabella fullo <pic> looks remarkably similar to native CA worm P. pallida, and lacked a comprehensive description or illustration to easily decipher between the two worms. By re-describing the species, we strengthen taxonomists’ ability to id the worm in non-native habitats. Parasabella fullo from Cali...
The main dissimilarities between Parasabella fullo (invasive) and P. pallida (native) are a longer dorsal collar margin in Pf, medium-size, digitiform radiolar tips with broad flanges in Pf, and a difference in the projection of dorsal lips to lateral lamellae length (Table 2).

Today on our #citizenscience board we're discussing which inverts are easiest to ID from photos. Our recent #InvasionsLabPub showed that conspicuous taxa (large or arborescent) are best. Do you agree? Try yourself & let us know which animals you recognize fastest! #FunFactFriday Image

“If you’re a manager interested in managing invasive species, you could look at this as an opportunity... Now you have a clean slate. It’s time to take aggressive management action.” -Dr. Andy Chang
