The Introduction of New Species in Habitats of Heated Effluents



There are few genuine examples of the conscious introduction of marine animals to new areas. Immigrant species have usually been accidentally introduced; ships arriving from foreign ports are regarded as the most likely source of immigrants either as ballast or on hulls. The history is usually unknown and the spread of the immigrant species is largely conjectural, one of the major difficulties, of course, being that even bottom-living forms frequently have planktonic larval stages and can spread relatively rapidly with tides and currents.
