Experimental study on control of Limnoperna fortunei biofouling in water transfer tunnels
The golden mussel (Limnoperna fortunei) is a filter-collector macroinvertebrate species originating from southern China. It easily invades water transfer tunnels and attaches onto tunnel walls and structures with extremely ...
Forecasting the expansion of the invasive golden mussel Limnoperna fortunei in Brazilian and North American rivers based on its occurrence in the Paraguay River and Pantanal wetland of Brazil.
(Aquatic Invasions, v.5, n. 1, p. 59-73, 2010., 2014)
Impacts of the Invading Golden Mussel Limnoperna fortunei on Zooplankton: a Mesocosm Experiment
(Academia Sinica, 2012-04)
Invasive filter-feeding mussels and clams are well-known for profoundly impacting the invaded systems. Many studies in South America documented interactions of the Asian mussel Limnoperna fortunei with several components ...
Byssal hairs in the invasive Asian freshwater bivalve Limnoperna fortunei (Mytilidae) in the Paraná River system with comments on this species in South America
(Taylor & Francis, 2014-04)
We recorded, for the first time, byssal hairs in the Asian freshwater bivalve Limnoperna fortunei from the Paraná River system. We analysed the presence of hairs and their distribution on the shell in relation to habitat ...
Evaluation of sampling and analysis techniques for early detection of Limnoperna fortunei (Mytilidae) in limit areas of its distribution
(Instituto Internacional de Ecologia, 2009-08)
The golden mussel Limnoperna fortunei (Dunker, 1857) (Mytilidae) is an invading species in continental waters in the Neotropical Region. L. fortunei is transported by human activities. Differing from fresh water bivalves ...
Effect of starvation and subsequent feeding on glycogen concentration, behavior and mortality in the golden mussel Limnoperna Fortunei (Dunker, 1857) (Bivalvia: Mytilidae)
(Cnr Ist Italiano Idrobiologia, 2016-07)
The success of Limnoperna fortunei as an invasive species is related to its physiological plasticity that allows them to endure adverse environmental conditions. Starvation tolerance is considered to be an important trait ...
First record of the non-indigenous mussel Limnoperna fortunei (Bivalvia, Mytilidae) as an epibiont of the crab Trichodactylus borellianus (Decapoda, Trichodactylidae)
(Brill Academic Publishers, 2013-03)
In the area of Middle Paraná River, Argentina, in the pleuston community associated with the roots of Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms-Laubach, 1883, an epibiosis of the non-indigenous mussel Limnoperna fortunei (Dunker, ...
Ecosystem impacts of the invasive bivalve Limnoperna fortunei (golden mussel) in South America
We summarize current knowledge on the effects of the invasive Asian bivalve Limnoperna fortunei (introduced in South America around 1990) on local biota. Limnoperna modifies nutrient concentrations and decreases concentrations ...
