My PhD project focuses on the distribution and spread of the invasive population of Crepidula fornicata in Wales, UK. I am investigating the possibility of this species to expand its range north through natural larval dispersal and adult reproduction, and potential controlling factors of those processes (e.g. exposure to low temperature). Also, I am especially interested in understanding the roles of larval supply, larval settlement and larval habitat selection in determining patterns of adult distribution.
