Size comparison of quadrats in sample of non-native bivalve Corbicula fluminea (Müller, 1774) (Bivalvia: Corbiculidae)Comparação de tamanhos de quadrats na amostragem do bivalve não-nativo Corbicula fluminea (Müller, 1774) (Bivalvia: Corbiculidae)
We aimed to designate which is the best quadrat area to be used in sampling of C. fluminea for determination of their population parameters. The quadrat of 0.0625 m2 showed the best cost efficiency and a lowest sampling ...
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 ...
Primeiro registro de ocorrência do bivalve exótico Corbicula fluminea (Muller, 1774) na microbacia do Rio Jundiaí-mirim, SP, Brasil
Corbicula fluminea is a naturally occurring Asian bivalve that was spread around the world, and which has become a highly aggressive invasive species in many countries. C. fluminea has many ecological, economic and social ...
Situação atual da ocorrencia do bivalve invasor Isognomon bicolor no litoral norte paulista e variabilidade genetica da especie no sudeste brasileiroCurrent distribution of the invasive mussel isognomon bicolor on the northem coast of São Paulo State and genetic variability of the species
The effect of an invading filter-feeding bivalve on a phytoplankton assemblage from the Parana´ system: a mesocosm experiment
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-10)
The effect of different concentrations of the bivalve Limnoperna fortunei on the algal density and structure and its filtration rate was estimated in a mesocosm experiment. The experiment was carried out using containers ...
Shell growth of the golden mussel, Limnoperna fortunei (Dunker, 1857) (Mytilidae), in the Río de la Plata, Argentina
(Kluwer Academic/plenum Publ, 2003-12)
The golden mussel, Limnoperna fortunei, is an invasive freshwater bivalve. Since its introduction to Argentina, it had caused damage to the native fauna as well as economic damage to industries of the region. Here, we ...
Invasive Bivalves assesment in the diet of pejerrey, Odontesthes bonariensis (Valenciennes, 1835), at the Upper Río de la Plata, Argentina
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2015-04)
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 ...
Persistence of the invasive bivalve Isognomon bicolor in southeastern Brazil after a mass mortality event: local and regional approaches
(Instituro de estudos do Mar Almirante Paulo MoreiraArraial do Cabo, RJ, 2015)
Native fish larvae take advantage of introduced mussel larvae: field evidence of feeding preferences on veligers of the introduced freshwater bivalve Limnopernafortunei
Previous work has shown that the invasive bivalve Limnoperna fortunei has had a measurable impact on local food webs, but knowledge of the trophic interactions involved is still very limited. On the basis of samples collected ...
