Ecophysiology of the Green Shore Crab (Carcinus maenas) and Related Species: Mechanisms Behind the Success of a Global Invader provides an in-depth perspective of devastatingly invasive coastal species. During the last 175 years, Carcinus maenas has spread around the globe by human activities. Because of its ability to flourish in a wide variety of ecosystems and outcompete native species it has been listed as one of the top 100 worst global invaders. Written by international experts, this book dedicates most of its focus to Carcinus maenas and discusses other brachyurans with similar physiologies as comparisons. The first chapters cover physiological control systems, while later chapters focus on mechanisms used by these species to survive environmental perturbations. Ecophysiology of the Green Shore Crab (Carcinus maenas) and Related Species: Mechanisms Behind the Success of a Global Invader serves as a valuable resource for researchers in marine biology and invasive biology, as well as for university lecturers, government, or environmental agencies.
