Warming Waters: Implications for Invasive Species in the Northeast

Other Titles
Abstract

Climate change is warming northeastern water bodies and changing the environmental conditions that structure aquatic communities, presenting new challenges for the management and conservation of these ecosystems. The altered physical, chemical, and biological conditions resulting from warming waters may benefi t or harm native species while providing new opportunities for non-native species to establish or expand. Here, we summarize how increasing water temperatures may in fluence aquatic invasives and synthesize the growing body of scientifi c evidence on this topic. Managers should consider these changes when drafting management plans, creating species watch lists, and planning strategically for the future.
