- ... There are 11 species of genus Chydorus Leach, 1816 (Cladocera: Chydoridae) in Australia, including populations of Chydorus sphaericus (O.F. Müller, 1785) morphologically undistinguishable from European ones. Our genetic study of C. sphaericus from two large artificial water bodies in the Adelaide region of South Australia led us to conclude the taxon was introduced to Australia from Europe by huma ...

- ... Genetic options for the control of invasive fishes were recently reviewed and synthesized at a 2010 international symposium, held in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, USA. The only option currently available “off-the-shelf” is triploidy, which can be used to produce sterile males for a release program analogous to those widely and successfully used for biological control of insect pests. However, the Troj ...
