Abstract

Invasive species are a global threat to biodiversity, and their introduction can have large economic and ecological consequences. Red swamp crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) are known to be highly invasive and can alter ecosystem structure and function. We document a recent occurrence of P. clarkii in a Pecos River tributary, New Mexico, following removal of common carp (Cyprinus carpio), another highly invasive species, from recently restored aquatic habitat.

Las especies invasoras son una amenaza global para la biodiversidad y su introducción puede tener grandes consecuencias económicas y ecológicas. Se sabe que el cangrejo rojo del pantano (Procambarus clarkii) es altamente invasivo y puede alterar la estructura y función del ecosistema. Documentamos la aparición reciente de P. clarkii en un afluente del río Pecos, Nuevo México, luego de la eliminación de la carpa común (Cyprinus carpio), otra especie altamente invasiva, del hábitat acuático recientemente restaurado.
