Rapid fish measurements in China. [Yes, these fish were alive – and very active!]

The project will examine the similarities and differences among species that are invasive and non-invasive across ecosystem types (marine, freshwater, terrestrial) and taxonomic groups (plants, vertebrates, invertebrates) with the aim of identifying a common set of characteristics or life strategies shared by all invasive species. Exact details will be worked out with the successful applicant.
Information about the project and how to apply can be found here. Applications will close on 2 January 2017.
Please contact me (j.a.catford@soton.ac.uk) with additional questions.
