Dear Listers

Re:   "An assessment of the distribution and abundance of sea cucumbers,
trochus,giant clams, coral, fish
and INVASIVE species at Ashmore Reef National Nature Reserve and Cartier
Island Marine Reserve" by UniQuest 2005:

This report refers only to the Crown of Thorns starfish and Drupella
gastropods as naturally 'invasive' species.

For information on introduced marine and terrestrial species at Ashmore
Reef and Cartier Island, there is
Russel et al's (2004) report which is downloadable from the same website:
