Data from: Invasive lumbricid earthworms in North America – different life-histories but common dispersal?

Andreas Klein, Nico Eisenhauer & Ina Schaefer
Aim Lumbricid earthworms are invasive across northern North America, causing notable changes in forest ecosystems. During their range expansion, they encountered harsher climatic conditions compared to their native ranges in short time (~400 years). This study investigated if (1) dispersal barriers, (2) climatic selection, or (3) anthropogenic activities, i.e. fishing bait disposal, structure the dispersal of free-living earthworm populations. Location North America, forest habitats along former Wisconsinan glaciation line Taxon Lumbricus terrestris, L. rubellus Methods...
