This event is a part of our ongoing Lunch Tuesday seminar series.

About: Alien species represent a major threat to biodiversity worldwide through a myriad of effects such as altering fundamental ecological processes, transforming habitats, and changing community structure through competition, predation, and grazing. In this talk, Esch will provide examples of a variety of tools used (species distribution modeling, photogrammetry, respirometry, etc.) to assess the invasion risk
of marine fishes in the aquarium trade and of a newly established alien marine fish to coral reefs in the western Atlantic. These tools can provide insight for management action regarding alien species.
