Some good invasive species posts have popped up in the blogosphere of late:
- bootstrap analysis has summaries of two recently published papers about invasive plants, one featuring garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) and the other featuring periwinkle (Vinca minor) - yes, periwinkle.
- The Lobster Fact Blog has a post about black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) rediscovered off the coast of North Carolina. This is the second sighting in as many years in that part of the Atlantic. I don't get whether the LFB is a splog or not, but this is the first I've heard of the tiger shrimp invasion, so I'll link to them. Who knows, maybe I'll get a lobster-gram ;-). Thanks to Deb H. for sending this one in!
