Abstract
Biological species invasions are resulting in rapid and profound changes in many coastal habitats. The consequences of these invasions are broad-based and go well beyond the immediate ecological impacts. In addition to the more obvious ecological changes, invasions can create dramatic changes across multiple trophic levels, alter carbon and nitrogen cycling, threaten species extinction through hybridization, shift alpha and beta diversity, change the behavior and morphology of both native and invasive species, and facilitate other invasions. I will present examples of some of the expected and unexpected consequences of species invasions in coastal systems and discuss prospects for the future in these highly invaded coastal systems.
