Species Invasions in British Columbia: Who, What, Where, When, and Why You Should Care.

Invasive species are thought to be one of the leading causes of loss of native species around the world. Much of our understanding of how invasive species affects native communities comes from work on terrestrial habitats but invasive species are just as important in our marine habitats. Depending on the invasive species, it can have a variety of impacts to that native ecosystems. I will start by discussing how marine invasive species are moved throughout our oceans and then explore some of the species which have invaded coastal British Columbia and some classic examples of invasive marine species. My goal is that you will leave with a more thorough understanding of the ecological importance of introduced species, the roles they can play in new environments, and gain a greater appreciation of the marine habitats around Vancouver Island.
