Alternatively, proposals of living shorelines, such as introduction of native oyster beds on tidal flats throughout this region [ 46 ], [ 47 ], may also provide coarse substrates that could facilitate spread e. More information is needed on the distributions and spreading potential of the Manila clam in its southern range to make informed decisions. In particular, we need more information on the life history and growth of the clam in its southern range, where warmer conditions may lead to faster growth and more frequent spawning [ 7 ],[ 48 ]. We also need to better understand dispersal, settlement and establishment patterns in space and time as related to freshwater pulses, other environmental variables e.

A regional approach to data collection is needed throughout the Southern end of this introduced range to better understand how these factors change with location and conditions, and to document current distribution against which to measure spread. While effects of the Manila clam on other species along the west coast of North America are only recently starting to emerge [ 51 ], studies from Europe reveal potential dramatic ecosystem-level effects associated with dense beds of the clam [ 52 ],[ 53 ].

Page pers. Tracking the habitat requirements, spread and establishment of the Manila clam will inform management priorities and actions in this and other regions, which is especially important given the various plans being considered to adapt with climate change.

Abstract Coastal ecosystem modifications have contributed to the spread of introduced species through alterations of historic disturbance regimes and resource availability, and increased propagule pressure. Introduction Humans play key roles in the spread and subsequent establishment of species from native to introduced ranges around the world [ 1 ]. Open in a separate window. Fig 1.
