4.1 Impacts of biological invasions on the macroinvertebrate assemblages in Lake Balaton

Balogh, C, A Vláčilová, L G‐Tóth & Z Serfőző (2018) Dreissenid colonization during the initial invasion of the quagga mussel in the largest Central European shallow lake, Lake Balaton, Hungary. Journal of Great Lakes Research. 44: 114–125.

Comparing our long term dataset with new results we investigate the effect of quagga mussel (Dreissena bugensis) invasion on macroinvertebrate abundance and diversity. Based on the invasive meltdown theory, we assess the vulnerability of the lake in relation of species composition and ecosystem networks.
