About this book

The Mediterranean, Black and Caspian Seas represent three fragments of the former Tethys Sea, and are thus of great interest to understanding the evolution of the entire region where Eurasia, Africa and the Arabian Peninsula meet.

Provides an up-to-date overview of the situation in the Ponto-Caspian with regard to the jelly invasions that have been perturbing the local pelagic ecosystems since the early 1980s, contrasting that with biological invasions elsewhere, to try and identify general underlying principles.


Preface.- 1: Mnemiopsis leidyi, Beroe cf ovata, and their interaction.- 2: Ponto-Caspian species invading Europe: information networking.- 3: Other Mediterranean Invaders.- 4: Conclusions from the Meeting.- Index.
