Kelp is on the way

The New Zealand Deprtment of Conservation recently released this monograph (.pdf file) about the marine seaweed Undaria pinnatifida. In it you'll find a description of this species' life history, along with detailed discussions about negative impacts, pathways of invasion, and a whole bunch of references. Well worth the read if you're a stakeholder on the California coast.

Thanks to a member of the ALIENS-L listserver for posting a link to the story.
