Report on species-specific characteristics that influence the probabilities of arrival, establishment and invasion

A database of reported locations of introduced seaweed species and of traits associated with these species is available. Overall, 128 introduced species have been characterised for biological and biogeographical traits. The most significant donor regions for Europe are Japan and California. The presence of a free floating stage significantly affects the probability that an introduced species will become common across a broad range or invasive.
