Nonindigenous Aquatic & Terrestrial Species

Status, Pathway and Time of Introduction, Present Distribution, and Significant Ecological and Economic Effects

This report was compiled in 1995 by Dr. James McCann, et al, shortly before his retirement from the Southeastern Biological Science Center (SBSC). As the SBSC was unable to publish the report due to budget cuts, and we recognized the value of it, we obtained permission to publish it from the SBSC Director. The full report is available in PDF format here. It is 267 pages long.
