Components and drivers of change in European freshwater fish faunas [Journal of Biogeography]

Keywords : biodiversity, catchment range threshold, conservation, European rivers, exotic and invasive species, non-native species, species reshuffling, taxonomic homogenization, translocation

by Frédéric Magné - published on

Human-induced loss of native species and introduction of non-native species have altered richness and composition of species assemblages world-wide. During the past 15 years many studies have focused on changes in taxonomic similarity and identified numerous yet often contrasting reasons for these changes. This study aims to quantify taxonomic changes in freshwater fish assemblages between the mid-19th century and today, while explicitly separating its different components and drivers.(...)
