Data from: Habitat explains patterns of population decline for an invasive crayfish

Eric R. Larson, Timothy A. Kreps, Brett Peters, Jody A. Peters & David M. Lodge
Invasive non-indigenous species are defined by their impacts: they substantially change native communities or ecosystems. Accordingly, invasive species might transform their habitats in ways that eventually become unfavorable to them, causing population declines or even extirpations. Here we use over 40 years of systematically collected data on the abundance of the invasive rusty crayfish Faxonius rusticus from 17 lakes in northern Wisconsin, USA to explore if population declines of this invader are related to the...
