Predicting the ecological impacts of invasive crayfishes under climate change
My research tries to predict how increased surface water temperatures, following climate change, may modify the impacts of invasive crayfish in the Great Lakes. Focusing on two invasive crayfish from aquaria, namely the red swamp (Procambarus clarkii) and marbled crayfish (Procambarus virginalis), I study the effect of temperature on their ecological impacts.
