Species range shifts, biological invasions and ocean warming
Organizers: Andrea Anton, Eugenia Apostolaki, Marlene Wesselmann

This Theme Section brings together the current research on two interrelated marine ecological topics: (1) invasive species in a warming ocean, and (2) climate-mediated species range shifts. Marine species are moving beyond their native geographical ranges either in response to climate change or by being introduced into new marine regions as a consequence of an increasingly connected world. The arrival of species at new regions can lead to ecological challenges for both the invader and the recipient community. Contributions to this Theme Section provide evidence that global warming, and occasionally environmental degradation, are crucial factors altering the distribution of both marine invasive species and range-shifting species.
