Species lists for the approximately 500 introduced marine and estuarine species of invertebrates and algae included in the database are available using the search function, however, species reports are only available for tunicates and decapods (crabs, shrimp, and crayfish). For example, click here for a summary or synthesis report across species of tunicates, or type in a search to access reports on an individual tunicate species. A list of all the introduced tunicates in the database can be found in the group report above or by typing "tunicate" in the search field. See the introduction for additional search options.
The creation and presentation of NEMESIS is ongoing. The barnacles are currently under review and should be released soon, followed by bryozoans.
Please contact Monaca Noble if you have any questions or suggestions.
