This study explored the effectiveness of pelleted dry ice on the mortality of the Asian clam (Corbicula fluminea) in laboratory settings and simulated clam patches.

Advancing invasion science (2020)

Unprecedented rates of introduction and spread of non-native species pose burgeoning challenges to biodiversity, natural resource management, regional economies, and human health. This study identifies four priority areas to advance invasion science in the face of rapid global environmental change.

Asian hornet (2020) – UK incursions

This study investigated the incursions and management of Asian hornet (Vespa velutina nigrithorax) in the United Kingdom between 2016-2019.

Pathways for marine INNS (2020)

This study investigated the influence of shipping and man-made habitat modification on the occurrence and assemblage of intertidal non-native species in ports on the south coast of England.

Bloody-red shrimp (2020) – biosecurity

This study investigated the use of two common aquatic disinfectants (Virasure® Aquatic, and Virkon® Aquatic) and steam on the mortality of bloody-red shrimp (Hemimysis anomala).
