Tasmanian Devils

From The Sunday Tasmanian comes this article describing the many marine invaders causing problems in the ports of Tasmania. Among them are the Northern Pacific seastar (Asterias amurensis), which is damaging commercial stocks of native bivalves, and Japanese kelp (Undaria pinnatifida), a seaweed that thrives on disturbance caused by native species. Bonus points to the Sunday Tasmanian for using scientific names.
