Description
As part of a national and global effort to understand and document patterns of invasion in marine coastal waters, we are collecting invertebrates from embayments across the United States, Panama and Australia. more

As part of a national and global effort to understand and document patterns of invasion in marine coastal waters, we are collecting invertebrates from embayments across the United States, Panama and Australia. Invertebrate collecting devices called settling plates are deployed at marinas, commercial and military docks in several embayments each year. Settling plates are constructed of both wood and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) so that both wood-boring species and hard surface foulers can be collected.
