Introduced species impact in Brazilian part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) : Adverse habitat modification [details]

Introduced species impact Brazilian part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) Overall, results suggest a negative tipping point
between partial to nearly full coral cover, especially at sites where physically complex macroalgae, capable
to retain sediments and hence the invertebrates therein, are displaced by the establishment and growth of sun-coral colonies. As important prey for reef fishes, the collapse of small crustacean populations may alter whole-reef ecosystem functioning and negatively impact local fisheries. [details]

Introduced species impact Brazilian part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) Outcompetes native species for resources and/or space [details]

Introduced species management Brazilian part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) We conclude that Vinegar/acetic acid (V/AA) is an effective agent for killing Tubastraea spp. and most other aquatic organisms, can be applied using different methods and in different environments for controlling: (1) invasive or outbreak species; and (2) biofouling by native or invasive species on aquaculture systems and vectors. V/AA may be used applied pre-border to shipping vectors potentially transporting non-indigenous marine biofouling species such as Tubastraea spp. [details]
