5. DNA metabarcoding as a tool to update freshwater invasive species checklist

Introduction

Ecosystems have been extensively altered and are now especially vulnerable to biological invasions. In southern Europe (Portugal, Spain and Italy), many river basins currently harbour more non-native than native fish species, with ecological impacts ranging from the individual to ecosystem levels, namely due to habitat alteration, predation, competition, hybridization, and pathogen transmission.
