About Ian

Deputy Editor in Chief, Aquatic Invasions

Associate Editor, Biological Invasions

Associate Editor, Bioinvasions Records

Associate Editor, Marine and Freshwater Research

Research Interests

My main interests are invasion biology and zooplankton ecology. In particular, I am interested in the exploration of biological invasion vectors and pathways responsible for transportation of species at global or finer scales. Such investigations are useful for prediction and prevention of invasions of nonindigenous species. For more information click on the links below:
